Preparation

Beat the butter with the sugar, vanilla sugar and salt until the mixture is light and fluffy, then add the eggs and milk and mix well. Add the flour with the baking powder, passing them through a sieve and mixing well. Pour the batter into paper cups or ramekins, filling them halfway. Place the cups on a baking sheet and bake in a preheated oven at 180° C for about 20-25 minutes.

CREAM CHEESE ICING
Whip the cheese, butter and 100g of icing sugar with an electric mixer. Gradually add the rest of the sugar to the mixture, mixing well. Add a few drops of vanilla extract and continue beating until it becomes a soft icing.

MARSHMALLOW FONDANT
Cook the marshmallow with a teaspoon of water in a double boiler until completely melted. Add 3/4 of the sugar and mix. Pour the mixture onto a buttered work surface and, with greased hands, combine the remaining sugar and knead. Keep the butter on hand: it is important that your hands and the surface are always sufficiently greased, because the mixture is very sticky.
Separating the mixture into as many parts as you want colours (you will need a bigger part for the green of the grass) and add the food colouring and any flavourings. Continue to knead until the mixture becomes soft and shiny (if it is too dry, you can add a few drops of water). It should be kept in sealed bags until use, as it tends to dry in contact with the air.

PUTTING THE MUFFINS TOGETHER
When the muffins are completely cold, you can decorate them. Apply a thin layer of cream cheese icing, which will be the creamy base for the lawn. Pressing a fondant ball in a garlic crusher will give you the blades of grass to stick to the frosting, then you can decorate as you wish, with chocolate eggs, flowers etc.
