Method

  1. Preheat oven to 180°C, 160°C fan, Gas mark 4.
  2. Weigh your eggs. Note the weight and measure the same amount of Flora, sugar and flour.
  3. Place all the ingredients in a mixing bowl and beat with a wooden spoon 2-3 minutes until well mixed. Place dessertspoons of the mixture in 10-12 paper cases or greased bun tins.
  4. Bake for around 20 minutes until soft and springy to touch. Cool on a wire tray.
  5. Mix icing ingredients together and spread over the cakes. Sprinkle with coconut and decorate as a snowman face using the buttons cut in half for the hat, the chocolate drops for eyes and orange decoration for nose.
