  1. Preheat oven to 150°C/130°C fan forced. Grease and line a 20cm round cake pan with baking paper.
  2. Using an electric mixer, beat butter, NESTLÉ Sweetened Condensed Milk and vanilla until thick and creamy; add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Fold in sifted flour and baking powder, alternately with milk.
  3. Divide mixture among three bowls; using a few drops of pink food colouring, tint one pink; add NESTLÉ Baking Cocoa and extra milk into second mixture; leave the remaining mixture plain.
  4. Drop alternate spoonfuls of mixtures into prepared pan. Swirl mixture with butter knife to create a marbled effect. Bake for 1¼ hours or until a skewer inserted into the centre comes out clean. Stand cake in pan 5 minutes before turning out onto a wire rack to cool.
  5. Meanwhile make Chocolate Frosting: using electric beaters, beat butter and icing sugar in a medium bowl until pale and creamy; add NESTLÉ Docello Calypso beat until smooth. Spread over top of cake. Decorate with Easter eggs.
