Take your favorite cake and decorate it up for Easter. Have fun, use the treats your family loves. This makes a great centerpiece for the table.

Carol Junkins' New Snowball Cake inspired me to post these cakes I made last Easter. One was for my house and the other I took to my friend's work.

How to Make Easter Cake

Step-by-Step

  • 1Color coconut green (or any other color your choose.)

    Add coconut to a ziplock bag and add a few drops of food coloring. Close the bag and smash the food coloring & coconut around. If you want it darker, add a few more drops of food coloring and smash it around a bit more.
  • 2Make your cake, any cake you choose and frost it.
    Apply the coconut to the frosting and cover it completely so it looks like a beautiful grass.
  • 3Add an assortment of Easter candies. I made coconut nests and put jelly beans in them. I also purchased wrapped miniature chocolate candies to decorate with. I also purchased marzipan carrots. The lady who inspired me to make my Easter cakes used marshmallow peeps. Use any candy or decorations you can find. The sky is the limit, and this cake is only limited by your imagination.
  • 4Make a foil handle by tearing off a length of aluminum foil and folding it back and forth until you have a long strip about 1 inch wide. Wrap with ribbon for a festive Easter basket look.
