Cream the butter and sugar together until very light and fluffy. Gradually add the eggs. Beat until combined. Fold in the flour mixture and the milk.

3.

Divide mixture between the prepared pans and bake for 20 min or until a skewer inserted comes out clean. Cool on a wire rack.

4.

Sandwich cakes together with half the Chocolate Frosting and some of the crushed Maltesers. Top with remaining frosting and Maltesers. Garnish with some whole Maltesers if desired. Chill until required.
