Mother/Daughter Baking: Snow Man Cupcakes

There may not be snow in Texas, but we still love the winter and all that goes with it.  Coconut and butter cream icing make a great substitute snow ball!  Emily and I made these cute little cupcakes when she was home over the break.

If we get a snow day this year, or you find a rainy, wet, Texas winter day has you stuck inside, these would be a fun activity for you and the kids!  Find the link to the directions Here.

We made the following modifications to the recipe:  
~Instead of the vanilla wafer ear muffs, we used jelly candy
~We put chocolate icing in a baggie and trimmed the corner to make a pastry bag to create the
~Instead of the mini M&Ms, we used upside down chocolate chips for the eyes
~Instead of sugar on the icing, we used coconut
Best part of the entire experience, may have been the end...
when Emily stuck it out and did the dishes!
It was at that moment that I realized my little girl was all grown up...
Pure JOY!
