    1. Ice the cooled cupcakes (you can use shop bought cupcakes, or you can make your own from a recipe or a box).
    2. Cut liquorice laces into 7cm sections. Use a wooden skewer to poke 3 holes in each side of the cupcake. Insert the pieces of liquorice into each hole for the legs.
    3. Place two chocolate sweets or jelly beans as eyes and one more for a nose. Add icing to the eyes to make pupils. Enjoy!
