The Eat Food NOT Money Cookbook

Adorable snowman cake

What you’ll need:

1 box cake mix (any flavor) and ingredients needed to prepare cake
1 container white frosting
1 c shredded coconut
1 large black gumdrop
1 large green gumdrop
3 pieces red shoestring licorice
4 individual semisweet chocolate chips
2 chocolate wafer cookies
Large tray or foil covered cardboard

Bake cake according to package directions, using one 8 inch round pan and one 9 inch round pan. Cool. Remove from pans and place on tray with the larger cake on the bottom and the smaller cake above it to make a snowman shape (see picture). Frost. Sprinkle coconut on cake and gently press down so it sticks. Carefully cut the black gumdrop in half lengthwise. Use one half as nose. Slice the remaining half in half and use as eyebrows. Cut the green gumdrop in half lengthwise and use as eyes. Use licorice for mouth and muffler and chocolate chips for buttons. Place cookie on each side of head for earmuffs and a piece of licorice across top of head as the headband part of the earmuffs.

Cost:
boxed cake mix – $1.29
frosting – $1.29
shredded coconut – $2.25/bag
decorations – $2.00
Total – $5.08
