ingredients

directions

  • Melt 2 chocolate coins in the microwave or in in a bowl over a pan of simmering water, until liquified.
  • Dip each cylindrical/round chocolate into the melted chocolate and 'glue' to the coins of chocolate, to look like tophats.
  • Sieve icing sugar and add to soft butter and hot water.
  • Mix slowly for 2 minutes, then fast, until light and creamy.
  • Spread buttercream over each cupcake, leaving a little over to 'glue' the hats on later.
  • Place a marshmallow in the middle of each cupcake.
  • Snap each chocolate stick in half and place into the cupcake for arms.
  • Pipe on a green scarf around the marshmallow.
  • Pipe on black eyes and red or orange nose and buttons (If it doesn't stick very well, slightly dampen the side of the marshmallow with a wet finger).
  • "Glue" on the tophat with remaining buttercream.

    Thanks for this - really effective for an xmas charity cake sale at work! I used royal icing for the bodies, fondant icing scarves and a decorating pen for the faces (given that my piping is rubbish!)
