Preparation time: 15 min

Cooking time: 12-15 min

125 g STORK BAKE, softened

125 ml (½ c) caster sugar

2 eggs

Preheat the oven to 180 °C.

Line cupcake tins with paper cups.

Sift the flour into a bowl, add the rest of the cake ingredients and beat well with an electric beater until well mixed and smooth.

Divide among the paper cups and bake for 12-15 minutes until done.



Work the plastic icing with your hands until soft.

Add a few drops of food colouring and knead it into the icing.

Roll out thinly, cut out circles the size of the cupcake tops and use apricot jam to stick them to the cupcakes.

Use butter icing to stick two black licorice sweets onto each cupcake for eyes, an Astro for the nose and half a red licorice sweet for the mouth.

Use a piping bag fitted with a thin nozzle to add whiskers next to the nose and pupils for the eyes.

Pipe chocolate icing all around for the hair and top with yellow sprinkles.
