Your kids will love creating these fluffy sheep cakes using shop-bought cupcakes, mini marshmallows, icing and chocolate buttons. Just watch that you don't accidentally eat all the mini marshmallows before you've finished decorating them... (like we very nearly did).

- Shop-bought cupcakes
- White icing
- Mini marshmallows
- Chocolate buttons
- Googly fondant eyes
Ask your kids to cover the cakes in icing.
Then, they pop on a chocolate button face.
Now, they stick on lots of mini marshmallows.
And, finally, stick on googly fondant eyes (use a little more icing as glue).
Your child will love being creative with this cool cake decoration. Talk to them about textures while you’re decorating. What does a sheep's wool feel like? Is it hard or soft like the marshmallows you’ve used? What do other animals feel like? How about a snake, a fish or a pig?
