Preheat the oven to 180°C (160°C for fan assisted ovens)/Gas Mark 4. Line 2 x 12-hole muffin trays with paper cupcake cases. Make, bake and cool the cake mix as directed for cupcakes on the box.

In a bowl add enough orange food colouring to the vanilla icing to give a bright orange colour. Using a small palette knife, spread the icing on the top of the cupcakes. Pile some of the crushed biscuits to resemble earth in the centre of each cupcake.

Shape 48 shoes out of some of the chocolate ready to roll icing and press 1 shoe onto the end of each candy stick. Insert 2 candy stick ‘legs’ into each cupcake.

Shape 24 hats from the rest of the ready to roll icing. Cut 3 strawberry straws in half, then cut each in half lengthways into 4 thin strips to make 24 strips in total and wrap one around each hat. Position the hats on the cupcakes.

Cut the remaining strawberry straws into 24 x 4 cm long pieces, then cut small slits into each piece without cutting all the way through to create the broom bristles. Push each one onto the end of a chocolate coated stick for broomsticks and place on the cupcakes.
