Get Creative and transform him into a TEDDY BEAR by adding Mini-Marshmallows for ears! This is a great Highchair craft for toddlers. Frosting is the glue. Spread it with knife and stick on his appendages. For added reinforcements you can stick a pretzel thru his head and body or body and legs. Toothpicks work better but not so preschooler friendly :-)
Mini-Marshmallows become snow for the snowman cupcakes. This one from the Disney website uses gumdrops for a hat and licorice for his skis. We tried to make a hat from a chocolate marshmallow. Without a brim it looks like a Russian cap.
