Gather your ingredients and preheat your oven to the temperature recommended for your cupcake mix.
Prepare cupcakes according to package’s directions. Allow them to cool completely before decorating.
As the cupcakes cool, use an electric mixer to beat together butter, confectioners’ sugar and milk. Once all ingredients are well-combined, the buttercream is ready.
Use an offset spatula to frost each cupcake with a hefty amount of buttercream.
Dip each frosted cupcake in the bowl of sugar.
Decorate each cupcake with a “snowman face” by using the black and orange frosting, attaching Wilton icing tip #5 to each frosting.
Enjoy your adorable snowman cupcakes!
