  • 1
    Heat oven to 350°F (180°C ) for shiny metal pan or 325°F (160°C) for dark or non-stick baking pans. Lightly grease or spray with non-stick cooking spray, bottom and sides of two 8-inch (20 cm) or two 9-inch (23 cm) round baking pans.
  • 2
    In large bowl, beat cake mix, water, oil and eggs with electric mixer on low speed for 30 seconds; beat on medium speed 2 minutes, scraping bowl occasionally. Pour into pan.
  • 3
    Bake 24 to 29 minutes or until toothpick inserted in centre comes out clean. Cool 10 minutes. Remove from pans to cooling rack. Cool completely, about 1 hour.
  • 4
    Place 1 cake layer, rounded side down, on serving plate. Spread with 1/3 cup (75 mL) frosting. Top with second layer, rounded side up. Frost side of cake and spread thin layer of frosting on top of cake. Make a basket weave pattern in frosting on side by drawing inch-long horizontal and vertical lines with tines of fork.
  • 5
    Shake coconut and 3 or 4 drops food colour in tightly covered jar until evenly tinted. Sprinkle on top of cake. Place candy eggs on coconut. Store loosely covered.

Expert Tips

  • Tip: Instead of a basket weave, make "funny spring animals playing in the field" by placing animal - shaped marshmallow candy on tinted coconut.
