Preheat oven to 180°C/350°F/Gas 4.

Place all ingredients in a bowl and mix well.

Spoon into muffin cases and bake in preheated oven for 15 minutes or until golden.

Allow to cool in the tin for 5 minutes and then transfer to wire rack to cool fully.

Make butter icing:

Beat butter until really soft and then add in icing sugar.  Beat well for 10 minutes if you want really creamy icing.

Put in piping bag and pipe the buns when cool.

Decorate with mini Smarties and shop bought Halloween decorations.

Add a little ribbon around each one for a pretty look.

I always use muffin cases when making buns as the finished bun is lower in the case and when iced, it looks much better.
