Invite this snowman in from the cold. A cake mix and ready-to-spread frosting make quick work of this clever cake.
Yield: 16 servings
High Altitude (3500-6500 ft): Follow High Altitude directions on cake mix box.
Special Touch: Make this cake the star of a skating and sliding party! The morning of the party, bake and frost the cake. Save the rest of the decorating for when you and your party guests come in from the cold. Decorate the smiley snowman as you sip hot chocolate and enjoy Christmas cookies.
Variation: Just for fun, create a Skating Snowman Cake! Carefully cut a flat-bottom ice cream cone lengthwise in half and use for boots. Place a candy cane under each boot for the skate blade.
