You will need
3 large eggs
168g caster sugar
168g self-raising flour
168g soft butter
1tsp baking powder
250g icing sugar (sieved)
16 cupcake liners/muffin tin
coloured chocolate dots/beans
black edible pen
Preheat oven to 180C (160C fan/gas mark 4).
Cream the butter. Then add sugar and mix well. Add eggs one at a time, mix until combined. Sieve flour and baking powder and fold into mix.
Fill cases to about 2/3rds full. Bake on middle shelf of oven for about 14 minutes, or until cakes are golden. Then cool on wire rack.
Mix some water with the sieved icing sugar, a little at a time, until thick enough to spread on cakes. (Use any extra icing to stick on all the other bits later!)
Once the icing is set on the cakes, draw eyes and a mouth on the marshmallows, and cut a small piece of M&M for the nose. Stick the marshmallow on top of the cake, and add 3 chocolate dots/beans for buttons.
Put the cakes in the fridge until firm. Place lace around neck for scarf and draw on arms with black edible pen.
