Wow! This was so easy, and it turned out to be so cute!! For the handle, I wanted to use several red licorice ropes, but I accidentally picked up the wrong kind at the store. I was in a bit of a crunch, time wise, so this idea will have to wait until next year. Instead, I laid out a piece of rose-colored saran wrap, laid a piece of tin foil, the same size, on top of it, then rolled the two together. The handle was pretty and strong; the ends went right down into the sides of the cake. The coconut was a lot less messy than I thought it would be to color, and it looked great in and around the cake! I filled the middle of the "basket" with some of the coconut grass and then put in some chocolates and jelly beans. Thanks for a terrific idea that will likely be a new tradition!
