  1. Line a cupcake tin with 12 cupcake liners.
  2. Combine the milk and lemon juice in a bowl and set to one side.
  3. In a large bowl beat together the Stork and caster sugar until well combined.
  4. Add the eggs, flour, bicarbonate of soda and cocoa powder and beat well.
  5. Add the milk/lemon juice mixture and stir until the consistency is even.
  6. Using red food colour paste colour the cake batter red.
  7. Divide the mixture between the cupcake case and bake in the oven (180c/160c (fan)/Gas Mark 4) at 4 for 20-25 minutes until well risen and springy to the touch.
  8. Transfer to a wire rack and allow to cool completely.
  9. To make the frosting beat together the Stork and icing sugar. Once well combined add the cream cheese and beat again until just combined.
  10. Spread the frosting onto the tops of the cooled cakes to cover.
  11. Cut each of the mini marshmallows in half to create the eyes, press a small chocolate ball or chocolate chip to the cut edge of the marshmallow – it’s sticky and will hold it in place.
  12. Add a glace cherry nose to the centre of each cake, a short length of strawberry laces for the mouth and two marshmallow eyes.
