125 ml butter
100 ml milk
2 tsp baking powder

For the decoration:
150 g marshmallows
1 tsp water
300 g icing sugar
margarine or butter for hands and work surfaces


  • Preheat the oven to 180°C and line a muffin tray with paper muffin cases.
  • Beat the butter, sugar, vanilla sugar and salt until creamy, then add the eggs and milk and stir well.
  • Mix the sieved flour with the baking powder and add to the mixture.
  • Spoon the mixture into the muffin cases so that they are each 3/4 full.
  • Bake in the oven for approx. 20 - 25 minutes.

For the glaze:

  • Mix the cream cheese with 50 g butter and 100 g icing sugar.
  • Gradually add the remaining icing sugar for the glaze.
  • Stir in a few drops of vanilla extract and continue stirring until a smooth consistency forms.

For the decoration:

  • Melt the marshmallows with a teaspoon of water in a bain-marie.
  • Add 220 g icing sugar and stir well.
  • Grease the work surface with a little butter and pour the mixture over it.
  • Add the remaining sugar and knead everything together thoroughly by hand.
  • Grease your hands with a little butter first, because the mixture is very sticky.
  • Divide the mixture into several small pieces.
  • Mix in a little food dye and the flavourings into each piece.
  • Knead the resulting dough to a soft, smooth fondant.
  • Wrap the pieces in paper to stop it from drying out, until you need it again. 
  • Allow the muffins to cool completely before decorating them.
  • Brush a thin layer of glaze over the muffins.
  • This provides a base to secure the other decorative elements on the muffin.
  • Push a small piece of the green fondant through a garlic press.
  • This creates the grass. Stick this to the muffins.
  • Using the other coloured fondant pieces, shape decorative flowers or use chocolate eggs to decorate the muffins the way you want.
