1. Mix butter and icing sugar to make a smooth buttercream, add a tiny bit of water if you feel it is not soft enough to spread on the cakes
2. When cakes are completely cool cover the top of each cake with buttercream.
3. Top cakes with marshmallows, raspberries / cherries and nuts.
4. Sprinkle cakes with coconut.
5. Melt chocolate in microwave safe bowl on low heat stirring at 10 second intervals. Or melt in saucepan over low heat stirring continuously.
