Coconutty snowmen

Christmas is 2 weeks away!

There are so many things I plan on baking. Fruitcake. Gingerbread men/houses. Chocolate chip cookies*. (*Not festive, but I've been meaning to make them for over half a year now..)

Anyway, I have these snowmen baking trays that I bought last year. So I decided to try them out!

The cakes turned out pretty good! :)

Ah.. my little snowmen! :D I love you!

  1. This is the cutest thing I've ever seen! I can't wait to make these this weekend and this homemade eggnong

  2. I collect snowmen, so I love these! Now I need to find a snowman tin like that! :D

  3. I just gave away 2 pans like that to a neighbor girl with 5 kids, 3 being natural tripletts. i told her if she didn't have time to bake to fill them with mashed potatoes for the kids. Cute!

  4. Thanks guys! :)

    Sorry Tiffany, I'm not sure where I bought them from. It was during Christmas last year, and I tend to buy a lot of unnecessary things when I see them. Haha..

    You can find them online in places like Amazon though. This one is similar:
