  1. Heat oven to 350 degrees F. Generously grease up to 8 4-inch round backing pans using a baking spray with flour; set aside over a large baking sheet.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk flour, malted milk powder, baking powder and salt; set aside.
  3. In a large bowl using an electric mixer on medium speed, beat butter and sugar until light and fluffy, about 2 minutes. Add eggs one at a time and vanilla, continue beating until well blended.
  4. On low speed, mix in flour mixture and milk in 3 parts. Divide batter evenly among the 8 prepared baking pans, about 3/4 cup batter or half-full.
  5. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Allow cakes to cool in pan for 5 minutes before removing to a cooling rack.
  6. Meanwhile, in a large bowl using an electric mixer on low-medium speed, beat butter until light and fluffy, about 1 minute. Add powdered sugar 1 cup at a time, malted milk powder, 2 teaspoons of vanilla and milk, beat until well blended.
  7. Divide frosting evenly into 3 small bowls, add small amount of food gel coloring and mix thoroughly.
  8. Using an angled spatula, frost each cake layer, stack and frost the sides of the cake.
  9. For the speckling effect, refer to Speckled Easter Cupcakes here.  Sprinkle shredded coconut over the center of the cake and top with a few malted milk eggs. ENJOY!
