Malted Vanilla Cake



  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Butter two 8-inch round cake pans. Line bottoms with parchment paper; butter paper. Flour pans; set aside.
  2. In a 1-cup measuring cup stir together milk and vanilla bean paste; set aside. In a large mixing bowl stir together the cake flour, vanilla sugar, baking powder, and salt. Add butter and milk mixture; beat on low speed with an electric mixer until combined. Increase speed to medium; beat for 1 minute.
  3. Add two of the egg whites; beat on medium speed for 30 seconds. Scrape down sides of bowl. Add the remaining three egg whites; beat for 30 seconds.
  4. Divide batter between prepared pans; spread evenly. Bake about 30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the centers comes out clean. Cool in pans on a wire rack for 10 minutes. Remove from pans; remove parchment. Cool completely on wire racks.
  5. Place one cake layer, top side up, on a serving plate. Spread with some of the frosting. Top with the remaining cake layer. Frost top and sides with additional frosting (you may have extra frosting; use it for piping or for spreading onto cupcakes or Easter cookies). Decorate as desired with cotton candy and Easter egg candies just before serving.

From the Test Kitchen

Prepare frosting up to 5 days ahead. Transfer to a storage container; cover and chill up to 3 days. Let stand at room temperature for 1 hour or until soft enough to spread. Assembled cake can be stored, covered, in the refrigerator up to 24 hours. Let stand at room temperature about 1 hour before serving.

Malted Buttercream Frosting



  1. In a very large mixing bowl beat the butter on medium speed of an electric mixer until creamy. Reduce speed to low and gradually beat in 6 cups of the powdered sugar and the malted milk powder. Increase speed to medium and add 4 tablespoons of the milk, the vanilla, and salt. Beat for 2 minutes or until smooth. Add enough of the remaining powdered sugar or milk to make a frosting that is spreadable.
