Preheat the oven to 180°C. Line a muffin-tray with cupcake cases.
Combine all the dry ingredients together and mix well.
In a separate bowl, whisk together the egg, milk, melted butter and cherry syrup.
Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and beat for 2 minutes until well combined. Slowly add the hot water and mix through.
The batter will be very runny, so don’t be alarmed.
Pour the batter into the cupcake cases (about 3/4 full) and place into the oven. Place a maraschino cherry on each cupcake and push it in slightly.
Bake the cupcakes for 15-18 minutes until a skewer inserted comes out clean.
Remove from the oven and allow to cool for 5 minutes in the tray. Remove them from the tray and allow them to cool completely on a wire rack.
For the topping, whip the cream with the sugar and vanilla until stiff peaks form. Transfer to a piping back and pipe onto the cupcakes.
Decorate with chocolate shavings and a Maraschino cherry.
