Freeze-Bake Snow Cakes

by Rachel Dodd

My 3-year-old couldn't play outside because of the dangerously cold weather. So I collected leaves and twigs from the yard, sequins and ribbon from our art supplies, and a few kitchen utensils. In the evening we put a large bowl on the doorstep to collect falling snow. The next morning, she mixed all her "ingredients." Then she spooned it into a muffin tin and set it on the doorstep to "bake." The result? Snow cakes! (To feed the snowmen, of course.)
