Make these festive and yummy Snowman Snowball Cakes to celebrate the holiday season. These jolly snowmen are super adorable, a tad goofy and so much fun to make. Simply use the Snowball Cakes (Banh Bao Chi) recipe I shared earlier to make the snowmen bottoms and middles. For the snowmen heads, make the balls using just dough, no filling needed. Decorate the snowmen with assorted fruit strips, candy sprinkles, candy slices and chocolate cookies. Making these Snowmen Snowball Cakes is a fun activity the kiddies will really love. There's no right or wrong way when it comes to being creative. Like snowflakes, no two snowman will be the same. If you make these Snowmen Snowball Cakes, please share a pic to my Facebook page or Instagram with #runawayricesnowmen I'd love to see your creations!
In a small measuring cup, add the boiling water and sugar. Stir until the sugar is dissolved. In a medium bowl, combine the sweet rice flour and sugar water mixture. Mix together until a soft dough forms. Knead the dough for 1 minute. Pinch off small amounts of dough and roll, making 12 balls for the snowmen heads. Use the remaining dough and make mini balls for the snowmen's snowballs.
For the eyes, take a pinch of a fruit strip and roll into a small ball. Make 24 balls.
For the noses, cut the candy orange slices into small triangles. Make 12 triangles.
For the mouths, cut red fruit strips into small sections. Make 12 sections.
Insert a toothpick halfway through the top of a snowman bottom. Carefully set a snowman middle through the toothpick, resting it firmly on the snowman bottom. Insert another toothpick halfway though the snowman middle. Position the scarves through the second toothpick to secure them. Place the snowmen heads through the second toothpick. Place the cookie hats on top of each snowman head. Use the cookie cream to "glue" the pieces together and to the snowmen heads.
