    I have a child who doesn't like coconut, so I only use it on the chick and leave it off the egg -- just smooth the icing and decorate.

    This cake looks so cute, but the instructions refer us to diagrams for cutting the cake. There are no diagrams. >>

    You have to click on the word 'Diagram' in the directions of the recipe in order to see the actual diagrams. They do not tell you this anywhere in the instructions. >>
