Frosty the Snowman

snowmanThis cake was for my daughter’s 14th birthday party.  As soon as she hears of the first frost, she starts wishing for snow.  The body of the snowman is 4-layers of chocolate cake with generous amounts of buttercream.  The head and hat are made of rice crispy treats.  The nose, arms, and brim of the hat are made of gumpaste- which I make myself.  The cake will serve 30 to 35 people and the rice crispy treats are just a nice yummy bonus.  My wife cut the cake and said, “taking a knife to a snowman’s head just doesn’t feel right!”
