1

Heat oven to 180°C. Grease your Mini EasyMat and line two shallow cake tins with baking paper

Add flour, oats and coconut sugar and gently combine (do not overmix)

Divide mix evenly between Mini EasyMat and 2 cake tins, place into the oven to bake for 15 minutes after which time remove the Mini EasyMat and continue to bake the main cake for a further 5-10 minutes

6

In the meantime, make the frosting by whipping cream with a hand whisk until it will no longer run off the back of a spoon (stiff peaks) - reserve 6 tablespoons of frosting

7

Once baked cakes are cool, spread 2 tablespoons of frosting over the inside of one of the cakes, you could add strawberry jam to inside of the other cake if desired

8

Sandwich the two cakes together and then frost the rest of the cake using the remaining frosting

9

Add frosting to the two eyes created from the Mini EasyMat mould and place strategically onto the cake, use your 2 blueberries to make pupil's

10

Take a large mug and cut out a half moon from the large lip shaped EasyMat mould to form a structured smile shape (use picture as a reference)

11

Add a few drops of red food colouring to reserved frosting, stir and then and spread over the lip mould - again place lips strategically onto the cake

12

To finish your cake place remaining strawberry (or you could use a large chocolate button) strategically into the nose position
