Wow guests at your Easter get-together with this impressive cake inspired by malted milk candy eggs.
Buy a new stiff-bristled craft brush to use for cake-speckling purposes. Most any size will work, but a 2-inch brush or larger will cover more surface area and make quicker work.
Kataifi can usually be found in the frozen grocery aisle with the ready-made pie crusts and puff pastry. It can also be found at Middle Eastern grocery stores and international markets.
The malted milk egg candies can be speckled with the chocolate to match the cake perfectly. Cover your work surface and lay the candies on a paper towel before you begin speckling them. Allow the candies to dry for 5 minutes before transferring them to the nest on top of the cake.
