We loooovvvee the Abominable Snowman from Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer, so we thought we would try to re-create him in a cupcake!!! How cute is that??

Here are all of the things you will need to make your very own Abominable Snowman Cupcakes:

  • 1 box white or yellow cake-mix (prepare as directed on box for cupcakes)
  • White frosting (we used cream cheese frosting)
  • Cupcake liners
  • Wilton Candy Eyes
  • Sweetened & shredded coconut
  • Spree candy
  • Mini M & M’s
  • Red Starbust Jellybeans (or Jelly Belly’s)
  • Twizzler Pull & Peel Red Licorice
  • Wilton’s Black Sparkle Gel with writer tip

This is ridiculously easy to make – I even did it (granted I had morale support and physical support from my mom and of course, my sister!)  All you do is prepare the cupcakes as directed. Be sure to let them completely cool.

Frost the cupcakes and roll the top  in the coconut.

Separate the Pull & Peel Licorice into individual strands and cut the licorice into about 2 inch pieces. Lay it across the top section of the cupcake and put a Spree on either end. Add the eyes and jelly bean nose – we used a little frosting on the back of the candy to help it stick. Finish them off using the sparkle gel for the mouth!

Once the cupcakes are cooled, it took us about a half hour or so to decorate (and two minutes to eat!)  It was super fun and a great family activity!
