Ingredients

Method

1.Preheat oven to 180°C; line 12-hole (⅓-cup/80ml) muffin pan with paper patty cases. Make cake according to directions on packet, pour ¼ cup of mixture into each hole; bake about 20 minutes. Stand cakes in pan 5 minutes; turn onto wire rack to cool.
2.To make butter cream, beat the butter (and any flavouring, if using) in a small narrow bowl with an electric mixer until the butter is as white as possible (this will result in a whiter butter cream which will give you better results if colouring it). Gradually beat in half the sifted icing sugar then the milk, then the remaining icing sugar. Beat until the butter cream is smooth and spreadable. Keep scraping down the side of the bowl during beating.
3.Spread butter cream over patty cakes. Trim pink and black layers from licorice allsorts, cut out two triangles to form ears. Secure pink layers onto black layers with a little black decorating gel; allow to dry then position on cakes.
4.Cut thin strips from licorice straps for whiskers and mouths, and triangles for noses; position on cakes. Position jelly beans on cakes for eyes; using black decorating gel, pipe lines on eyes for pupils. Position M&M’s for tongues.
