2. Empty the cake mix into a bowl. Add the milk, eggs and butter. Beat with an electric beater for 3 minutes until the mixture is smooth.

3. Spoon the mixture evenly into the paper cases and bake for 12 minutes or until cooked through. Remove and cool completely.

4. For the icing, beat the butter for 2 minutes using an electric beater until light and fluffy. Add icing sugar and cocoa and beat for 1 minute, then stir through the boiling water.
