Make a beautiful Speckled Egg Easter Cake for your Easter celebration that is a nod to that favorite Easter candy, Speckled Malted Milk Eggs.
Speckled malted milk candy eggs are my favorite Easter treat. This cake at Country Living is so pretty inspired me to make one for the grand finale to our Easter dinner this weekend.

Making do with what you have on hand and the ability to improvise is a great skill. I considered a few ways to make this cake. It can be made from scratch following the recipe at Country Living. But coconut isn’t my family’s favorite flavor. A little coconut is okay, but I don’t think they’d be thrilled with both a coconut flavored cake and frosting.
So I made it from scratch using an old favorite recipe called Silver White Cake (recipe below). The frosting I made from scratch using the recipe for Coconut Buttercream frosting at Country Living. The frosting recipe calls for coconut cream. Coconut cream has a very subtle natural sweet coconut flavor that is really nice and not overpowering.
A cook in a hurry could very easily make a cake just as delicious and pretty using a white (or any flavor you want, actually) cake mix. Or buy a premade cake at a bakery. Color canned white or cream cheese canned frosting and add chopped chocolate chips. These shortcuts will give you a cake like this in a jiffy!
