JUST like the outdoor kind, this frosty figure from our kitchen staff is sure to melt...only it'll be your mouth! The cute-as can-be character is completely edible, from its chocolate candy buttons and coconut snowflakes to the licorice scarf and gumdrop nose. What's more, you'll be able to build the confection without using a specially shaped pan. How? CT's cooks baked the cakes in ordinary ovenproof bowls, a muffin pan and custard cups. So go ahead—just gather the ingredients and roll out a snowman today!
