for the love of coconut

coconut cake

Coconut layer cake from Bon Appetit magazine (link)

I made this for a customer, but I had a reeeeeally hard time not eating this myself. I think I know what the next family get-together dessert is going to be. (In case you’re interested, here’s my cheesy little cake website. Just a stand-in until I get time to make a nicer one.)

I deviated from the recipe a bit by baking three layers because my cake pan are shorter than the ones called for in the recipe. Also, I toasted the coconut a little to add some color and extra flavor. And I mixed some into the frosting. YUM.


About Jessi

I'm married. I'm a mom of two. I love dogs and almost all other animals. I like to think about things for a long time. I like all crafts (except scrapbooking. ugh.) I like running. I like cooking and baking. I analyze everything. I stress out too much. I like coffee. I love having a husband that tells me to chill out. I'm thankful for a God that loves me in spite of my many failures.
