There are endless uses for this decorative topping... It's fun to put around individual servings of fruit salad or ambrosia. At Easter, I made a cake in the shape of an egg, and used the colored coconut flakes as "Easter grass" around the cake. I've also made carrot cake in the shape of a carrot, and used green coconut flakes to make a decorative pretend carrot top. You can also make a "fluffy" or "furry" cake by putting the colored flakes on top of the cake's frosting. I'm sure you'll think of many more ways to use it!
