These cupcakes are prefect for Christmas as they would make a perfect centre piece at a Christmas party. I cannot wait for it to snow so these cupcakes made me really want to snow especially when topped with the coconut as it gives the effect of snow.
These cupcakes were fun to make as you just start off with a cupcake then you build up your snowman on the top until you have a full snowman on the top. They are fiddly to get constructed if the buttercream hasn’t had that much time to set. I have not added little hats to my snowmen but it can easily be done by either using something like a Rolo or a Munchie and just use a little icing to stick them to the chocolate ball or you could make a little hat out of fondant icing.
I was slightly concerned about the sour cream, it is one strange ingredient in my opinion to add to cupcakes however you cannot taste the sour cream and in fact it actually makes the cakes really light and fluffy. I will be honest and will say that even with how the cakes turned out it will not be used unless the recipe calls for it.
One thing I have noticed is that once it is time to decorate, I get carried away and don’t take any photos of what you should be doing. Also, be aware when eating these that coconut goes everywhere but it is so worth it.
