Top Tips for making this Snowman:

  • You need to use modelling paste for this snowman. If you don't have any then you can make your own by adding tylose powder to sugar paste.
  • You can make this snowman bigger to go on the top of a big cake, but this size is perfect for a cupcake.
  • The head needs to be nearly half the side of his body.
  • Use a cocktail stick to hold the snowman together, if this is for small children you can always use spaghetti. 
  • If you struggle to make eyes with the black modelling paste, you can always use black nonpareils.
  • For the orange, colour the white paste with tangerine colouring.
  • You may not need to use glue to stick the buttons on as saracino paste is quite sticky.
  • When rolling modelling paste, if you leave one end thicker then it is easier to pick up from the board.
  • You can use the dresden tool to tuck the scarf under the chin a bit more.
  • Use a cocktail stick to add detail to the hat.
