snowman cake recipe for kids 8To make this snowman treat we used the cake recipe from our Valentine crispy cake lollipops, but we stuck with all white marshmallows to make out cakes more snowy. To fill a 25cm square tin and make around 12 cakes we used 25g butter :: 170g  marshmallows :: 120g rice crispy type cereal

Heat gently and stir until all the marshmallows have melted. Add the rice crispy cereal and stir gently until all the cereal is coated with the marshmallow mixture. Then line a baking tin with baking paper and fill with the rice crispy mixture. Flatten down the surface with the back of a spoon or wet hands. Pop the cake in the fridge to cool and go firm.
