  4. Take one cake and remove it’s wrapper.Turn it upside down and sandwich together on top of another cupcake using buttercream. This will make the sheep’s rounded body. Completely cover with buttercream and add marsh mellows to make the sheep’s woolly coat, leaving a space for the head. Decorate the mini egg with eyes and make little ears from the brown fondant. Add a nose and mouth with the black icing pen. Add the head to the sheep’s body using extra buttercream.
