- Heat oven to 180C. Cover a baking tray with baking paper.
- Mix flour, cayenne pepper, baking powder, salt and celery salt in a bowl. Rub in butter with fingertips so mixture looks like grains of sand. Mix in cheese.
- Pour in milk and mix to a soft dough ball.
- Place dough on to floured board. Break off pieces (golf ball size) and roll into balls.
- To create the tight 5, line 3 balls up (side by side), then 2 balls behind. Repeat the process for the second tight 5.
- Sprinkle with cheese and bake in the oven for 12-15 minutes or until golden brown.
- Put a generous spoonful of Marmite in a piping bag. Snip a small triangle off the bottom and pipe on the numbers. Use mayonnaise for the second tight 5.
