As recommended by Mario & Luigi ;-)
I made these cupcakes (with my little brother as cooking sidekick!) based on the mushrooms from the Mario games and a recipe from the book "500 cupcakes & muffins".

They're really simple to make & taste great!

This recipe makes approx 18 cakes.

  • Step 1

    Preheat the oven to Gas mark 4/ 350'F / 175'C and put 18 cake cases into the muffin tins.

  • Step 2

    Mix all the ingredients together and beat with an electric wisk for about 3 minutes (or until the mixture is pale and smooth).

  • Step 3

    Put approx 1 1/2 tsp of mixture into each case and put in the oven for 25 minutes. Then, take them out and let them cool for a bit before putting them onto a cooling rack.

  • Step 4

    For the icing:
    Beat together the butter, vanilla essence, icing sugar & lemon juice - adding as much red food colouring as required.

  • Step 5

    Spoon the icing onto the cakes and add three chocolate buttons. Next cut a few of the buttons in half and arrange them at the sides to give the full toadstall effect.

  • Step 6

    Once the icing has set, remove the cases and add two little chocolate chips on each cake for the eyes (use a little bit of icing to stick them on with).

These are so cute it makes me want to have a Mario themed party just to serve them. Plus I'm wearing a green mushroom "1-up" t-shirt as I type this. Happy

if you added a mini cupcake on top and extra frosting to conceal the sides, it would have a higher mushroom head=] more "3-D' i guess
