Not everyone wants to eat fruit cake at Christmas, and these are simple enough for children to decorate.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
1 Surprise fridge cake, mixture only
20 foil fairy cake cases
600g white sugarpaste
icing sugar, to dust
6 cm round cutter
60g white royal icing
60g black royal icing
30g red royal icing
40 mini chocolate beans
assorted strands, laces and long striped sweets

Method

  1. Place the cases in 2 fairy cake trays. Pack the cake mixture into the cases so that each is slightly domed and place in the refrigerator to set.
  2. To make the snowmen’s heads, roll 20 balls of white sugarpaste (each about the size of a cherry). Dust a work top and rolling pin with icing sugar and roll out the remaining sugarpaste to 5 mm thick. Using the cutter, cut out 20 circles. Place 1 on to each cake and smooth into place. Using the white royal icing, stick a snowman’s head on to each cake. Allow to dry for a few hours.
  3. Pipe 2 black eyes and a red nose on to each snowman, then, using royal icing, stick on 2 mini bean buttons. Finish by twisting a length of sweet around the neck of each snowman, holding in place with a little more royal icing.
