    1. Preheat the oven to 180 C / Gas 4. Line a muffin tin with paper cases.
    2. Mix the ingredients for the cake until well combined and spoon into the muffin tin.
    3. Bake in the oven for 15 to 20 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool completely.
    4. Mix the marzipan with the icing sugar until it becomes smooth, then form the mixture into little eye balls. Apply some chocolate drops as "pupils". It does not have to be straight - think of the cookie monster.
    5. Put a drop or two of blue food colouring on the desiccated coconut. For best results use a stainless steel bowl.
    6. In a separate bowl, combine some icing sugar, water and some blue food colouring.
    7. Dip the muffins headlong into the blue icing sugar mix, then dip into the coconut mix and allow to dry. Glue the marzipan eyes with some icing sugar mix onto the muffins. Cut the cookies in half, cut the cookie monster a mouth and carefully slide the cookie into it.

    They looked really good when done, had to add icing sugar to the coconut as it kept falling off the head but looked really fun  -  12 Aug 2013
