Muffin Men



Makes 12

You will need:

  • Strawberry pencils/belts – any sweet which is red and can pass as a tongue.
  • Water based frosting/icing

How to make Muffin Men…

See steps in photos…

  1. Make your muffins and leave them to cool.
  2. Cut a slit around the front of the muffin, near the muffin case. This will be the mouth.
  3. Gently squeeze the muffin on either side to open the mouth and put in your red sweet as a tongue.
  4. Mix up some water icing/frosting.
  5. Dab a little icing on the back of each fried egg and stick two above the mouth.
  6. 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.
