Offer to bring the dessert when you head to Grandma’s house for Easter. Your family will be amazed at your creation!
box Betty Crocker™ SuperMoist™ yellow cake mix
Water, vegetable oil and eggs called for on cake mix box
container Betty Crocker™ Rich & Creamy chocolate fudge frosting
cup shredded coconut
Green food color
Candy Easter eggs, as desired
Heat oven to 350°F (325°F for dark or nonstick pans). Make and cool cake as directed on box for two 8- or 9-inch round cake pans.
Place 1 cake layer, rounded side down, on serving plate. Spread with about 1/3 cup frosting. Top with second layer, rounded side up. Frost side of cake and spread a thin layer of frosting on top of cake. Make a basket weave pattern in frosting on side of cake by drawing inch-long horizontal and vertical lines with tines of fork.
Shake coconut and 3 or 4 drops food color in tightly covered jar until evenly tinted; sprinkle on top of cake. Place candy eggs on coconut. Store loosely covered.
Instead of a basket, make “funny spring animals playing in the field” by placing animal-shaped marshmallow candy on tinted coconut.
Make frosting a little easier by leaving a smooth finish on the cake. Your results will be equally delicious.
