I volunteered to bring the birthday cakes. After all of that holiday baking I just wasn't in the mood to get things mixing and mess with piping bags and deal with a messy kitchen, but the end result and the smile on her beautiful little face made it soooooo worth the effort.
I thought of her when I bought this Wilton Snowman Mini-Cake pan on clearance after the holidays for around $3. Spray the pan with non-stick spray and fill 3/4 full. Bake your mini-cakes at 350F for about 17 minutes and cool:
Add black round sprinkles for the eyes and colored sprinkles for the buttons. For the knit hats, pipe stripes going in different directions and keep layering until you get your desired look. Finish off the hats with a small band of zig-zag piping or just dots of frosting to create the fold in the hat.

So bright and cheerful!
I think I may like mini-cakes more than cupcakes now.
The kids couldn't wait to dive into these snowman mini-cakes.
