Ingredients
  • 6 chocolate muffins
  • 6 tbsp Betty Crocker Chocolate Fudge Icing
  • Icing sugar, for dusting
  • 75g purple ready-to-roll fondant icing
  • 75g blue ready-to-roll fondant icing
  • 75g pink ready-to-roll fondant icing
  • 75g yellow ready-to-roll fondant icing
  • 75g green ready-to-roll fondant icing
  • 75g orange ready-to-roll fondant icing
  • Dr. Oetker writing gels in assorted colours
Method
  • Trim the top off of each muffin to make it flat.

  • Spread a little fudge icing over the tops of 3 muffins. Sandwich each one with an un-iced muffin, top to top, then halve, top to bottom. (Laid flat, each one should be a long hexagon shape.)

  • On a surface dusted with icing sugar, roll out one piece of coloured fondant.

  • Spread fudge icing thinly all over one muffin pair and lay it flat side down on the fondant. Trim around the muffin. Moisten the edge of the fondant with water.

  • Roll a pair of 1.5cm fondant 'sausages'. Shape these into cheekbones on the muffin.

  • Knead and re-roll the fondant. Lay over the muffin and mould into a skull. Trim around the base.

  • Use the end of a wooden spoon to form eye sockets and a piping-nozzle tip to make the nose-hole.

  • Decorate with the writing gels and fondants in other colours. Repeat to make 6.
