Everyone loves this cake. I've been making it for over 35 years. It is by far our family favorite.

For Easter tint shredded coconut green, sprinkle over the cake, decorate with jelly beans. If you don't like coconut just add the jelly beans. Other candies and decorations.

For Christmas do the same thing except add red hots in groups of three, around the cake to make a Christmas wreath.

For St. Patrick's Day I just add green food coloring to the frosting for a real GREEN CAKE. You can decorate it with shamrocks or whatever.
