Snowman cake

Method

For the cake

  • Make the first snowman cake using half the quantity of the ingredients.
  • Preheat the oven to 170ο C (340ο F) set to fan.
  • In a mixer’s bowl add the sugar, the butter, and beat with the whisk attachment at high speed, for 3-4 minutes, until the mixture is fluffy.
  • Add the eggs one by one. Wait for each one to be incorporated before adding the next.
  • Add the flour, the cinnamon, the cloves, the zest, salt, the yogurt, and beat for 1-2 minutes.
  • Transfer to the snowman silicone mold and lightly shake it, so that the mixture covers the whole surface of the mold. Bake for 30-40 minutes.
  • Follow the same process for the second cake.

For the frosting

  • In a mixer’s bowl add the butter, the icing sugar, the vanilla, and beat with the whisk attachment at medium speed, for 2-3 minutes.
  • Transfer to a pastry bag and set aside.

To assemble

  • Put the black sugar paste onto your working surface and roll it out, using a rolling pin. With a knife, shape the hat and the eyes, and set aside.
  • Follow the same process for the orange and the white sugar paste, shaping the nose and the inner part of the eyes, respectively.
  • Slightly cut the bottom of the cakes in order to flatten their surface. Place one of the cakes on your serving platter and cover with 1/3 of the frosting.
  • Cover with the second cake and spread the remaining frosting over the whole surface.
  • Decorate the snowman with the hat, the nose, and the eyes. Shape the mouth using the chocolate candies.
  • Decorate with any candies that you like, and serve.
