Strawberry Malted Milkshake Easter Cake

Cakes, Desserts, Holiday, Spring

Happy Friday!

Tomorrow is April Fool’s Day aka the day when Josh and I are going to start talking about wedding planning (interesting date we chose, eh? we didn’t do it on purpose I swear!).

Yeh, we’ve put that off for a while because when we first started, like, two days after we got engaged, I immediately downloaded Aisle Planner and started to put a bit of a plan together. And then…it got stressful. So many people. It adds up so quickly! And if we’re doing a destination wedding…good gracious it’s a lot. Anywayz, we told each other that maybe we need to chill out and just enjoy this time a bit and put it off for a few months. So we did. And now that date is here (ugh!). But we’ll figure it out, I suppose. I’m not that stressed out about it.

I’ll share more on that soon (like, when we know what we’re doing)!

For now I wanted to share this cake recipe I made for Epicurious. I wanted a spring-y cake that would remind people of how a strawberry malted milkshake would taste. The barley flavor in the malt powder is so delicious in the cake and frosting.

And to make it Easter-centric, there’s a nest on top that’s made up of shards of white chocolate—it truly couldn’t be easier. I filled it with Cadbury pastel-colored chocolate eggs. They are the best holiday candy our of all holiday candy in my very humble opinion!

I hope you have a beautiful weekend.

Here’s a link to the post and recipe.

    Omg, YES! This cake is stunning and sounds almost even more delicious than it looks if that’s possible!

    This is the cutest cake! And I agree those candy eggs are 100% the best holiday candy.

    Good luck with the wedding planning! I felt the same way when we started but take your time and you’ll find the best spot for you two! One thing that helped me was to look at non-conventional wedding venues, domestic and abroad. There are lots of cool options out there. We are getting married in a castle/museum in MA which I randomly found while scrolling through a list of places to take kids. It’s a small place w/o the full staff of a hotel but the price was right and the location is beautiful.

    This cake is cute as can be! Everything about this looks and sounds delicious and the photos are gorgeous!

    Good luck with the wedding planning. It’s definitely a stressful process so I think it’s great that you were able to step back and try to make it a more enjoyable process.

      hehe so true about your photos!! Adrianna your photos and styling are always … DEEP SIGH BEAUTY. I used to love creme eggs as a kid because I was sugar-starved and mind-trained to like saccharine bullshit from TV commercials. But g-darn it they really are insanely sweet!

    So much yum going on here! Dying over the perfectly pink frosting especially though.

    Don’t feel bad about putting off the wedding planning, it can be super daunting and you should enjoy getting to be a fiancée for awhile! My hubs and I put it off for over a year, and then pulled it all off in four months….procrastination at it’s finest!

    Malted milk powder like Ovaltine?

      YES! But not the chocolate part. Malted milk powder can be found in the same area in your grocery stores.
