Spread thin layer of frosting on remaining top of cake. Make a basket weave pattern in frosting on side of cake by drawing inch-long horizontal and vertical lines with tines of fork. Shake coconut and 3 or 4 drops green food-color in tightly covered jar until coconut is evenly tinted; sprinkle on top of cake within rim. Place candy eggs on coconut. Make basket handle, if desired, by twisting pipe cleaners or wire; cover with aluminum foil, win with ribbon and insert in sides of cake.
