Welcome to DC KrazyKat! I don't know what a hostess cup cake is to even begin to help you! Could the icing be either butter or glace icings? (Just a stab in the dark.)

I think over here they use a (commercial) thick glace icing on donuts which is just icing sugar (powdered sugar, not granulated) and water with your choice of any colourings or flavourings. Don't know what a Maple bar is and a chocolate bar to me is just coated in chocolate!! I guess a fondant icing is possible but not sure.

There are heaps and heaps of bakers on this site so one will no doubt be along shortly and steer you better than I can.

I think you are wanting something like a ganache, which is chocolate melted down and a bit of cream added. When it cools it is stiffer than a regular frosting.
