Sunday dinner is a special time in our home. We always try to have a special meal and when possible a special dessert. Yesterday i asked everyone what we should have and received a resounding..."I don't know!" Thanks to pinterest we pulled up my dessert board and the men of the house declared Coconut Cake the winner. I said "happy baking" because I had just finished preparing a big meal and was left with no desire to prepare a "from scratch" cake no matter how yummy it might be. They got busy and a couple of hours later this was their creation.
Not only does it look great but it tasted delicious! I love a cake made from scratch and this one was excellent. The cake itself is simply wonderful vanilla. The frosting by consensus wasn't our favorite but it was good. It wasn't the taste we weren't crazy about it was just very similar to marshmallow cream which we aren't crazy about. When we make this again we decided it should have some type of whipped cream frosting. All in all it was a hit and I am ecstatic because I have been searching and baking trying to find a really good vanilla cake and i finally did!
