The Twelve Cakes of Christmas - (#1) Snowman

On the first day of Christmas, my true love baked for me...

...isn't that how it goes? Well, that's what I've been feeling like this holiday season. Jessica decided this year to bake 12 cakes in honor of Christmas. So starting today, we'll be posting one Christmas-themed cake a day until December 25th. Here's the first one to start it off.

Since we live in Florida and have no realistic chance of making a real snowman (despite recent freezing temps), Jessica decided to make an edible Frosty the Snowman.

This was a coconut cake with coconut custard and coconut buttercream from one of Jessica's favorite recipe books, appropriately titled "The Cake Book."

The cakes and buttercream prior to assembling.

The head (actually a cake ball), abdomen, and bottom.

The finished product.

I was reminded of the twisted snowmen from Calvin and Hobbes from my childhood. However, Jessica probably wouldn't go for making Killer Monster Snow Goon out of cake.

Check back tomorrow for the second cake of Christmas!
