Holiday baking with kids can be a blast, it’s the kind of activity that memories are made of. It’s also messy and often times frustrating! But if I let go and enjoy the moments I have to say that holiday baking with my girls is something I look forward to every year. This year we made super easy snowman cupcakes and I’m sharing just how simple and fun they are below.

I received some of the products featured in this post complimentary from Oriental Trading. All ideas and opinions expressed below are my own. View my disclosure policy here.

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!

There are so many ways to enjoy the holiday season with kids and the whole family. Including this fun game of printable Christmas charades.
