  2. Mix the boiling water and cocoa power into a stiff paste and add to the mixture.
  3. Put into a small baking tin, lined with greaseproof paper, and cook at 180 degrees for around 40 minutes.
  4. While the cake is baking, mix the butter and icing sugar until smooth.
  5. Melt the chocolate over boiling water, then when this is cool, add to the mixture.
