Jolly marshmallow snowmen
- Preparation and cooking time
- Makes 6
- 18 white marshmallows
- 250g ready-to-roll white fondant icing
- 18 strawberry laces
- 250g icing made from royal icing sugar
- 6 Pontefract cakes
- black writing icing
- 3 round black Liquorice Allsorts , halved
- 6 orange Tic Tacs
- 18 mini chocolate beans
- 24 mini white marshmallows
- mini candy canes or pretzel sticks
- roughly crushed sugar cube
- 6 lolly or cake pop sticks
- STEP 1
Take one cake pop stick and thread on a marshmallow, narrow end on first. Thread on a second marshmallow, wide end on first so the the two wide ends meet in the middle. Thread a third marshmallow on sideways so the narrow round end makes the snowman's face.
- STEP 2
Knead the white fondant icing and divide into 6. Shape each one into a rough mound and stick the snowmen into these bases.
- STEP 3
Take three strawberry laces and twist together. Tie around a snowman's neck and then trim off the excess with scissors. Repeat for the other snowmen.
- STEP 4
Using a little royal icing stick a Pontefract cake on each head. Using a little black writing icing, stick a Liquorice Allsort on top of each Pontefract cake.
- STEP 5
Pipe on two eyes using black writing icing. Using royal icing, stick a Tic Tac on each face for a carrot nose. Stick mini chocolate beans on the bodies as buttons.
- STEP 6
Using royal icing, stick four mini marshmallows on each snowman to represent arms. Stick a candy cane or pretzel stick to the end of one of each of the snowmen's arms, attaching the bottom end to the icing mound.
- STEP 7
Take a little royal icing and thin with a few drops of water. Brush or dab on the base and sprinkle over the crushed sugar cubes. Leave to set.
