Just a little FYI
for the future -- if you put the coconut in a lidded container (ie tupperware) you can drop a couple drops of food coloring in, close the lid and shake
Coloring can be a pain to remove -- I went to this last year's Marine Corps Birthday Ball for our command with red and blue fingers because I had gotten them dyed while preparing the cake the day before and could NOT get the last traces of color washed out in time.....
Looked SO great with a formal gown.....
