Easy Snowman Cupcakes with Kids
When baking with kids I try to keep it simple. They are not too interested in the recipe and would much rather focus on the decorations. For these cupcakes I used a box cake mix and homemade buttercream frosting. I saved the snowman decorating part for the kids to get creative with.
To make these easy snowman cupcakes follow these steps.
Grab an box of yellow cake mix and follow the directions to make 24 cupcakes. See how simple that is? I told you this was going to be easy.
This frosting right here is my go to for piping onto cupcakes or a cake. It is the perfect mix of creamy and sweet and pipes so nicely. Once the cupcakes are baked and have cooled, pipe a generous amount of white frosting on top of each one. High enough to hold the stick of the sucker.
Then, sprinkle the frosting with white candy crystals to mimic the look of snow. Finally stick in a snowman sucker and you have a beautiful snowman cupcake! Time to eat!
If you like this super simple snowman cupcake recipe, pin it and share it with your friends.
Baking with kids should be fun, not stressful. Make it easy on yourself and don’t try a complicated recipe. Focus on the parts of baking that your kids enjoy and everyone will have a good time.
