We're loving the snow right now. Here's a variation on "cake lollipops", Cake-ball Snowmen. PHOTOGRAPHS BY GAIL ALBERT HALABAN.These cake balls were formed then put in the freezer for about 20 minutes...(we had "play breaks" while they set up and chilled).
the chilled cakes covered lightly in buttercream icing (with our fingers, very messy!) and rolled in our hands to reshape balls and set into the freezer for an other 10-30 minutes
...the kids rolled the chilled and iced cake balls in a coating of confectioner's and sanding sugars. For supports we poked lollipop sticks into small 1/2" thick foamboard squares I cut in advance.
