5-6 tablespoon hot water

  • For the cupcakes, heat the oven to 180 degrees Celsius and place paper cases in a 12 hole bun tin.
  • Beat the butter and sugar in a mixing bowl until light and fluffy. Add the eggs a little at a time until the mixture is smooth. Sift in the flour and baking powder and gently fold in. Stir in the lemon juice.
  • Spoon the mixture into the paper cases and bake for 13-15 minutes until golden and springy to the touch. Remove from the tin and cool on a wire rack.
  • For the icing, sift the icing sugar into a bowl and mix with the hot water until smooth. Add a few drops of green food coloring and spread over the top of the cakes. Stick an orange candy in the center of each cake for the nose.
  • Roll small amounts of sugarpaste into balls and stick on top of the frosting for the eyes, attach chocolate buttons to the sugarpaste balls with a small dab of frosting. Attack 2 liquorice strips above the eyes for the feelers.
  • Sprinkle orange sprinkles on top of some of the cakes and attach liquprice strips to form legs. Place a small piece of strawberry lace on each cupcake for the mouth.
