For the icing: 250gm icing sugar, 1tsp cocoa, 45g horlicks, 125gm soft unsalted butter, 2tbsp boiling water, 2 x 37gm pkts maltesers.
Preheat the oven to 170'/G4. Whisk together the sugar and eggs.Heat the milk,butter,and horlicks powder in a saucepan until the butter melts and its hot not boiling.
When the sugar & eggs are light & frothy, beat in the hot horlicks mixture and then fold in the flour, cocoa,baking powder & bicarbonate of soda.
Divide the cake batter evenly between the cupcake cases and bake in the oven for 15 mins.Sieve the icing sugar, cocoa and horlicks into a bowl.Add the butter and mix then add hot water.
