How to make Muffin Men…
- Make your muffins and leave them to cool.
- Cut a slit around the front of the muffin, near the muffin case. This will be the mouth.
- Gently squeeze the muffin on either side to open the mouth and put in your red sweet as a tongue.
- Mix up some water icing/frosting.
- Dab a little icing on the back of each fried egg and stick two above the mouth.
- Repeat with all the muffins until you have 12 muffin men
- You can use your imagination when it comes to which sweets you use to decorate your muffin men – just see what’s available at the shops.
- Why not add some hair to your muffin men? Maybe some laces or piped icing.
