This is a super fun recipe for Christmas. Make them and get the kids to help decorate!
Preheat the oven to 180°C (conventional) and line a cupcake tray with 12 paper cases.
Place the flour, baking powder, sugar and butter into a large bowl or stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment. Beat until the mixture looks like fine bread crumbs.
Continue mixing and add in the eggs, beating until the mixture comes together in a thick batter. Add in the vanilla, coconut and milk and beat for a final time, just until incorporated. Stir the chocolate bits into the batter.
Distribute the batter evenly between the paper cases. Bake for 20 minutes or until golden and springing back lightly when touched. Set aside to cool completely.
Mix icing sugar and water to get a thick glaze then pour the glaze onto the cakes and use a knife or a small brush to spread it.
Create the eyes and the mouth of the snowmen by using chocolate bits and sprinkle with coconut.
Colour some white icing with red and yellow gel food colour to make orange icing. Create the noses and use a knife to cut a hole in the middle of each cupcake before placing the nose inside the cake.
