Maltesers Cupcakes

Inspired by Lucy's post, I decided to bake some malteser cupcakes this morning.

Now, the recipe says it makes 12 cupcakes - I ended up with double this! I find this happens a lot when I bake - does anyone else?

I made Malteser buttercream [vanilla buttercream but with a bit of horlicks added] and piped this...I don't think I've ever piped icing before, we have one of those plastic ones, so I used that. Some of them didn't come out too well, but most of them don't look too bad!

I topped some with whole maltesers, and some with crushed maltesers.

I think I want to bake something else later this week [I'm going through a stage where I just want to bake, bake, bake] but not entirely sure what I will make yet. I did think about maybe making the vanilla layer cake again, but adding a different layer inside [raspberry jam maybe, mmm] - but I am open to suggestions - does anyone have any good recipes?


  1. I'm sure I left a comment on here before! Why hasn't it shown up :( How was the buttercream with the horlicks in it? I really want to try that next time! x

  2. The cakes look really nice. think I will have to make them now,
