Who could resist these reindeer cakes?

Came across a recipe the other day and have adapted it to make these little reindeer cakes to take to my great nephew and neice. Who could resist eating these?

Reindeer Cup-cakes

150g margarine
150g caster sugar
150g SR flouor
1 tabsp. cocoa powder
3 eggs
To decorate
100g margarine
200g icing sugar
1tabsp. cocoa
glace cherries
marzipan - for eyes
pretzels - for antlers

1. Pre-heat oven to Gas 5/190C
2. Place 12 large cupcake cases into tray
3. Place all cake ingredients into a large mixing bowl and use an
electric mixer to cream all ingredients together until soft
and fluffy
4. Divide the mixture between the paper cases
5. Bake for 15 - 20 mins until soft and springy to touch
6. Cool on a wire rack whilst you make the butter-cream
7. Place margarine, icing sugar and cocoa into a bowl and use electric mixer to
cream together until well mixed
8. Place a heaped teaspoon of mixture onto the top of each cup-cake, spread around
and shape a face.
9. Add a glace cherry for the nose, 2 marzipan balls for the eyes and cut a pretzel
in half for the antlers.

So cute, can you possibly eat them.
