I love Malteasers, so much so that I wanted a Malteaser cupcake for my upcoming birthday.

After posting this photo on Facebook earlier to several comments, I give you the Malteaser Teaser Cupcake Trial :

This isn’t a full recipe as I didn’t take any pictures whilst making it, but it’s pretty straightforward.

For the cakes I used the Betty Crocker Chocolate Swirl Cake Mix. I made the mix according to the recipe and then put the vanilla mix into my Mini Sandwich Cake Tin, and topped each filled tin with a blob of the chocolate mix.

Cakes were baked until done and then topped with a malty chocolate buttercream and a Malteaser.

Malty Chocolate Buttercream Recipe

  • 75g Stork margarine
  • 175g Icing sugar
  • 30g ish of melted milk chocolate
  • 1tbsp ish of Horlicks drink powder

Cream the butter, then add the icing sugar gradually into the butter. Add the melted chocolate and mix. Finally, add the Horlicks to taste and mix.

The verdict?

It looks quite pretty, but I’m not too sure on the taste quite yet. I may have to pick another cake to try for my birthday.

I hadn’t forgotten about you, it’s just things have been crazy busy the past few weeks, and I haven’t had anything to really report on!

Firstly, I have been spending a lot of time on my OU (Open University) study, and as of Tuesday night, submitted my first assignment. I think it’s fair to say I was bricking it, as this is the first assignment in French I have done in eight years! But, I’ve already had my marks back and I’m on course with where I want to be at this stage. I haven’t listened to my feedback yet, I’m still trying to get the courage up!

Secondly, Mr H has been so busy with work that every chance I’ve had to be with him I’ve taken. He’s left for the Lake District this afternoon and I won’t see him again now until Thursday. But, we are going away for an early birthday weekend so I get some unspoiled time with him.

I owe you a February Bake of the Month, and although I made the bake, I forgot to photograph it, so I will be catching up on that shortly.

I’ll be back to regular posting now, so coming up will also be a review of the comedy night we went on last Friday as well as photos from my upcoming birthday weekend.
