Make The Cakes:
  1. In a bowl, combine the flour, unsweetened cocoa powder, malted milk powder, baking soda, baking powder, and salt.
  2. Cream the butter and sugar together until fluffy.
  3. Add egg and mix well.
  4. Beat in yogurt and vanilla extract until combined.
  5. Add the dry ingredients in two batches, taking care not to overbeat.
  6. Chill the batter for 30 minutes.
  7. Spoon or pipe about a tablespoon of batter onto parchment-lined baking sheets, in an elongated shape, about 2 inches apart.
  8. Bake for 10 minutes at 350 degrees F, and cool completely.
Make The Filling:
  1. In a glass or metal bowl, set over a saucepan of simmering water, combine all of the filling ingredients, whisking continuously until the sugar has completely dissolved and the mixture looks opaque (10-15 minutes).
  2. Remove from heat and whip on high speed until stiff and glossy.
  1. Spoon about a tablespoon of filling over half the cakes, and sandwich remaining cakes on top.
