Snowmen and cakepops

I recently purchased this
..and I have had some fun playing with it. They are super easy (I just use a cake mix and make it regular) and they bake in just 4 minutes! I use the directions from this video
In this, she unplugs it after about 2 minutes and lets it steam for the remainder of the time. I find that this gives soft, moist cake pops.

For coating, I use the Almond Bark from WalMart. and usually sprinkles. I don't usually put them on sticks, instead I put cupcake toppers on them.
These toppers were made using the Birthday Fishes set from Lettering Delights.
I also had a matching card and gift bag.
But today I decided to use the topper as part of the design itself - to make a snowman!
For this design, I used a card kit from the Silhouette store, card_snowman_kit_C01097_19210, and just modified the design so that I just cut the head and scarf. I doubled this (mirror image) so that I could fold them down. Here's a look at my layout.
A toothpick, a little red sticky tape and you are done! It's that easy.
