How to Build a Snowman - Part 2

 

Cut a corner off of ziploc bag and pipe some
frosting onto bottom of modified Hershey kiss.
Place kiss on snowman's head.
 

Pipe a line of frosting between neck and body for
the scarf . I used pink frosting for the girls and
green frosting for the boys.
 


 

I gave each family a group of snowmen and snowwomen
that represented their family and packaged them up
in brown paper liners and cello bags.
