Create an attractive display by covering a piece of sturdy cardboard with wrapping paper, then plastic food wrap. Stretch and secure with tape. Or cover cardboard with foil or cooking parchment paper.
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.
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.
