Well this cake looked so good, that even when part of it collapsed (due to one of the layers needing another minute or two in the oven,) I still received a lot of compliments. I used a chocolate cake, which I covered in pink-dyed frosting. Then, I used a basket weaving technique for the frosting using pink and purple colors for the sides. (If you have never used this technique, it is much simpler than it looks. I had found a tutorial by Wilton on Youtube.) I used different colors of marshmallow chicks and spiced jelly bean eggs for the top decorations. I tried to spread green-dyed frosting into the center of the cake basket, but then realized it would be easier to pipe it, since the cake sides were breaking apart as I was spreading it. (I did not use the coconut, because i don't like it.) Overall, this looked fantastic, despite the collapsed section.
