Blue Snowman by ginas-cakes Blue Snowman by ginas-cakes
A fruit marzipan and fondant cake donated to school to raise money in 2005.

The snowman theme carried on for a couple of years, as I gave the school a chioce of what design.....after this one, I didn't!
The good thing was, that it was worth all the effort, and raised money needed to help toward school equiptment :)

Aww, he's really cool! :) Erm, no pun intended...
Although he looks more like a cartoonized cuddly polar bear than a snowman to me. But maybe that's just my brain and/or eyesight!

:) No....your right, he does look more like a bear.....perhaps that's what he was supposed to be from the Christmas card I got the idea from!

Would you mind sharing how you did it? Are they just lots of tiny dots?

I set aside a whole week to do this. Mainly because my 5 little darlings were smaller and I needed to keep on top of things at home. Although saying that, I still set a week aside to do these sort of cakes so I can do a stage at a time, and allow to dry. So I'd say in total, 15 hours'ish

The cake is about 33cm tall, made of a traditional Christmas cake mix which is sculpted like the penguin cake [link]
I kind of have a tutoral in my step-by-step folder, just pictures really. Have a look and see if they help. If not, I'm glad to answer any questions :) I pop on during my coffee breaks at home, so check a few times a day.

Thankyou...and only one I'm afraid. My kids keep saying that we never have a nice one,
so I'll have to do one this year! I've just been putting on my old designs that I was saving
up to put on this month. All the kids are in 'big school' now, so it's all work, and no play
even coming up to the holidays :(
