Subsequent, take your pastry luggage which are crammed with royal icing or sweet melts and place two small black dots for the eyes, the orange carrot nostril and the black dots for the mouth. Allow them to sit out to dry.
When you let your selfmade snowman marshmallows dry, you may plop them in your favourite scorching chocolate or package deal them up in mason jars as lovely items.
