Easter lemon cream coconut cake egg nest recipe, great for a special occasion!


This cake is the most delicious, easy to make ever. You can decorate it like the picture above or with candy to make a nest cake for Easter.
The lion House cakes and cupcakes book with the Lemon cake and coconut recipe was my inspiration.



Lemon cream and coconut cake
All you need is a box of yellow cake mix and a can of lemon cream pie filling from Dunkan hines.


Follow the cake mix direction and add the lemon cream, saving 1/2 cup for the filling.


You will want to make the cake to the size you want. I like small cakes, so after freezing the cake i cut the 2 pieces i wanted.



I cut the 2 pieces in 2 to make more layers.
The filling is just 1/2 cup lemon cream and 1 container whip cream. Beat it together.


Use the filling also for the outside of the cake.


Cover with shredded coconut.
Shape a nest.
The eggs are Jolly rancher Jelly beans.



How pretty is this egg nest cake!

This sounds amazing!!! I can't belive how long it has been since I dropped by, it seems you were only a few months pregnant! Shame on me! You continue to have one of my favorite blogs! Your creativity and wit are priceless! I love your themed parties, fabulous recipes, and your beautiful photography! I still treasure and get compliments from guest on the lovely necklace I won from a give-a-way you hosted when I first started blogging two years ago. Several magazine features later, and I'm going strong! I don't know if you like Celine Dion, but I've had the song "s'il suffisait d'aimer" stuck in my head for a few days now. . .if only lover were enough--wouldn't the world be the better for it?
