Jo Arnell's take on an Easter Treat

  1. Make the sheep faces using chocolate eggs, writing icing and marzipan, to make the ears and eyes (you could always dip slices of marshmallow in chocolate and stick them on using icing).
  2. Leave to set for a few minutes while you make the bodies.
  3. Stick pairs of fairy cakes (find our recipe here) together (unwrap one and invert) with a little buttercream to make the sheep’s bodies and then spread buttercream all over.
  4. Stick the sheep heads in place. Make the fleeces by poking mini marshmallows into the buttercream – I cut them in half, as my sheep were rather plump.
