Party Cupcakes - Marshmallow Sheep
Bake regular and mini party cupcakes and decorate these party cupcakes to make little marshmallow sheep. As featured on GMTV.
large white marshmallows
100g (4 oz) butter, softened
To make the buttercream, sieve the icing sugar. Beat the butter until creamy in an electric mixer, then gradually beat in the icing sugar. Finally beat in the tablespoon of water.
Spread a layer of buttercream over the cupcakes using a palette knife and making a small mound of buttercream in the centre.
Cut the mini marshmallows in half arrange them in two circles around the edge of the cakes.
Cut the large marshmallows in half. Place one half on top of the mound of buttercream for the face.
Cut the other half of the marshamallow in half again and place on either side of the sheep’s face for the ears – the marshmallow ears will stick naturally as the cut side of the marshmallow are very sticky. Arrange some halved mini marshmallows on the top and behind the sheeps’s head.
Draw eyes and noses on the sheep’s face using the black Writing Icing.
