Preparation

Preparation steps

Step 1/10
For the cupcakes: Preheat the oven to 180°C (160° fan) 350°F gas 4. Place paper cases in a 12 hole muffin tin.
Step 2/10
Mix the flour, sugar and lemon zest together in a mixing bowl.
Step 3/10
Beat the eggs with the yoghurt, then pour into the dry ingredients with the melted butter. Mix together until just combined. The mixture will be slightly lumpy.
Step 4/10
Spoon into the paper cases and bake for 20-25 mins until risen and firm to the touch; the cakes will be quite pale on top. Cool for 5 minutes in the tins, then place on a wire rack to cool completely.
Step 5/10
For the icing: sift the icing sugar into a bowl and stir in the lemon juice. Beat in just enough water to give a thick coating consistency.
Step 6/10
Spread the icing on top of the muffins and sprinkle with the green sugar sprinkles.
Step 7/10
To decorate: Divide the marzipan into 2 equal portions. Knead a few drops of food colouring into each portion until evenly coloured.
Step 8/10
Roll out the green marzipan very thinly on a surface lightly dusted with icing sugar and cut out leaf shapes using a cookie cutter or a card template.
Step 9/10
Roll the red marzipan into small and tiny balls for the 'berries'.
Step 10/10
Pile up the leaves in the centre of each cake, curving them slightly and decorate with the red 'berries'. Attach a red and white candy to the top of the leaves and leave to set.
