  1. Step 1:

    Preheat the oven to 180ºc/350ºf/Gas 4 and line a 12-hole muffin tin with paper cases.

  2. Step 2:

    Cream the butter and sugar together in a bowl until pale. Beat in the eggs a little at a time and stir in the vanilla extract.

  3. Step 3:

    Fold in the flour at the same time adding a little milk until the mixture is of a dropping consistency. Spoon the mixture into the paper cases until they are half full.

  4. Step 4:

    Bake in the oven for 10-15 minutes, or until golden-brown on top and a skewer inserted into one of the cakes comes out clean. Set aside to cool.

  5. Step 5:

    For the buttercream icing, beat the butter in a large bowl until soft. Add half the icing sugar and beat until smooth.

  6. Step 6:

    Then add the remaining icing sugar with one tablespoon of the milk, until the mixture is smooth and creamy.

  7. Step 7:

    Spoon the icing into a piping bag with a star nozzle and pipe the icing using a spiralling motion onto the cup cakes in a large swirl.

  8. Step 8:

    Add a marshmallow to the top and paint on a Stormtrooper face using an edible icing pen.
