Can I swap the cocoa powder in my cake recipe for nesquik?

Or is the cake likely to turn out gross/poisonous/chemically unstable?

I want to make a big pink strawberry flavour cake

It just wont be as chocolatey. It will still work though, I have done it a few times.

nesquik is veeeery sweet compared to cocoa. I reckon you would need to reduce the sugar in the cake.

You can get strawberry essence in the supermarket, which might be a better bet.

Neskuik is mainly sugar with flavouring so you might as well substitute the Nesquik for sugar.
If you were substituting Nesquik chocolate powder for Cocoa to make a chocolate cake you'd end up with a mildly chocolatey very sugary cake.
I'd stick to plain victoria sponge with a real cream and strawberries filling.

It would work, I sometimes add cappacino powder to coffee cake

Don't do it - tis Nestle and therefore the work of the devil, it will turn your cake into a monstrous thing that will take over the world!

Not a good idea. But a chocolate cake sandwiched with strawberries and cream sounds yummy.

Healthier and infinitely yummier to grate in pure cacao (eg Willie's Cacao) and then you can control amount of sugar, or even use honey/maple etc instead....
