How to Make COLORFUL EASTER EGG CAKE
- 1Cake: Sift flour, salt, and baking powder, in medium mixing bowl, set aside. Grease and flour 10 inch tube pan. Preheat oven to 300 degrees F.
- 2Combine sugar and cocoa. Cream sugar / cocoa mixture with Crisco, and butter until fluffy in a Large mixing bowl. Add Vanilla. Add eggs one at a time beating well after each one. (EGGS SHOULD BE AT ROOM TEMPERATURE). Add the dry ingredients and milk alternately beating after each addition. Pour batter into tube pan and bake in 300 degree oven for 1 hour and 40 minutes.
- 3After cake is done, remove from oven and let it sit in pan 10-15 minutes before turning it out on cake plate. This makes a large cake. Place the cake on a pretty and large cake plate. Let it cool.
- 4FROSTING: Place the glass inside the hole of the tube cake, make the bottom of the glass face up. Frost the top two-thirds of the cake, leaving the 1/3 at bottom exposed with no icing. Using a small spatula, swirl the frosting in an upward motion to give it a fluffy, nest like appearance. Sprinkle the toasted coconut over top of cake and spill down sides but do not pat it on. Just a little sprinkle where ever it hits is fine. Place the foil colored eggs on top of the glass and sprinkle some jelly beans on them. On the cake plate and around the bottom of cake, place a few jelly beans but don't pile them up. THAT'S ALL FOLKS !! FIND THE PRIZE EGG !!!
