Home | Recipes | E
Cake Holiday


  • 1 Cake-cooled, baked in 10" fluted tube pan, yellow or devils food
  • 8 oz Cool Whip
  • 4 c Baker's Angel Flake coconut
  • Green and yellow food color
  • 3-foot red rope licorice
  • 3-foot red shoestring licorice


Frost cake, flat side up, with whipped topping. Tint half the coconut with green food coloring and half with yellow food coloring. Press yellow coconut on sides of cake to resemble basket. Sprinkle green coconut over top to resemble grass. Fold rope licorice in half and twist; wrap with shoestring licorice. Insert ends into top of cake (to make a handle of the licorice). Garnish with jelly beans and chocolate eggs if desired. Store in refrigerator. Note: To tint coconut, combine 4 drops of food coloring with 1 teaspoon of water or milk and sprinkle over coconut in a jar or bowl. Cover and shake vigorously, or toss with fork.
