cups powdered sugar
4

  1. Heat oven to 350°F (325°F for dark or nonstick pans). Spray 2 (9-inch) round cake pans with cooking spray. In large bowl, beat all Cake ingredients with electric mixer on medium speed 5 minutes, scraping bowl occasionally, until well blended. Pour batter into pans.

  3. In large bowl, beat butter, malted milk powder and unsweetened cocoa with electric mixer on low speed until smooth. Gradually add powdered sugar, 1 cup at a time, beating until combined. Add 4 tablespoons cream; beat until blended. Continue beating about 3 minutes or until frosting is light and fluffy, adding more cream if needed.
  4. Place 1 cake layer on serving plate; spread with 1/2 cup frosting. Top with second cake layer. Frost sides and top of cake with thin layer of frosting to seal in crumbs. Refrigerate 30 minutes.
  5. Frost cake with remaining frosting. Garnish with crushed malted milk balls.
