The Easter Egg Cake and how to hatch it
Using 1 box of cake mix, bake an 8-inch and a 9-inch layer cake. Cool.
Cut 9-inch layer as shown in diagram A and 8-inch layer as shown in diagram B.
Split 2 ring sections from diagram B. Arrange pieces as shown in diagram C, placing split ring sections above and below smaller zigzag piece.
Next, make 4-1/2 cups (2-egg white) Seven Minute Frosting; secure cake pieces with frosting.
Tint 3 cups frosting pink with red food coloring; frost egg portion of cake. Frost rest of cake with remaining frosting.
Now, using 1 package (7 oz.) Baker’s Angel Flake Coconut and food coloring, tint 1/2 cup coconut yellow, 1/3 cup coconut pink, and 1 cup coconut green.
Sprinkle yellow coconut over neck, head, and beak. Make a diamond pattern across egg with pink coconut. Sprinkle green coconut over nest, and remaining white coconut around diamonds.
Decorate to taste using licorice strings and jelly beans.
