Ingredients

For the cupcakes

  • 175g self-raising flour, sifted
  • 150g caster sugar
  • 100g butter, softened
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 medium eggs

 

For the toppings

  • 150g red fondant icing
  • 1 x small tube white writing icing
  • Approx. 32 Maltesers

Method

1. Preheat the oven to 180C/Fan 160C/Gas 4 and place 16 medium cup cake cases in a cake tray.

2. Beat together the flour, sugar, butter, vanilla extract and eggs using an electric food mixer for about 2 minutes, until well blended.

3. Divide between the cake cases and cook for 18-20 minutes, until well risen and golden. Remove from the heat, transfer to a wire rack and allow to cool completely.

4. Roll out the fondant icing and cut into circles large enough to sit over the cakes. Pipe a little white icing on top of the cake and arrange fondant circles on top pressing down well until secure. Then place the Maltesers balls as eyes on top using a spot of the white writing icing to secure, then pipe the winking eyes and mouths.
