Preheat the oven to 180°C
Beat the butter and the Sugar together. Add the egg and golden syrup and mix it well. Sift the flour and cocoa and add with dissolved soda in milk. Beat together until smooth. Add baking powder. Bake in a well greased and baking paper lined 20 - 23 cm cake tin for 40 - 45 mins.
When the cake is cold, ice it with chocolate Icing made with Chelsea Icing Sugar.
Tips: If you're having a problem with Icing sticking to your spreader, dip it briefly in hot water. The Icing will slide off without sticking.
