Preheat oven to 350°F. Generously grease and flour 3-D egg shaped baking pan. Combine all dry ingredients in large bowl; mix well. Add water, oil and eggs; mix until combined. Beat at medium speed for 2 minutes. Stir in sour cream. Pour into prepared pan.

Bake 60 to 65 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool 15 minutes. Loosen edges; invert cake onto wire rack and cool completely. While cake is cooling, prepare one of our many varieties of white buttercream frosting..

To Decorate Cake: If necessary, use serrated knife to trim flat side of cake. Frost entire cake with thin layer of white frosting to seal crumbs. Using pastry bag with a star tip, cover cake with piped stars. Decorate with chocolate-covered candies or jelly beans, as desired. To serve, surround cake with green tinted coconut, if desired.

Tip: To tint the coconut green, just dilute a few drops of green food coloring with 1 tsp. water. Place 1 cup coconut in a resealable bag; sprinkle in diluted coloring. Toss until coconut is tinted.
