Combine all dry ingredients in large bowl; mix well. Add water, oil and eggs; mix until combined. Beat at medium speed for two 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.
Prepare Classic Buttercream Frosting while cake is cooling.
To Decorate Cake:
If necessary, using a serrated knife, trim flat side of cake. Frost entire cake with a thin layer of white buttercream frosting to seal crumbs. Using a pastry bag with a star tip, cover the cake with piped stars. Decorate with chocolate covered candies or jelly beans as desired.
To serve, surround cake with green tinted coconut, if desired.
Makes 15 servings.
