Because it’s New Year’s Eve I can post twice in one day, right?!
Especially when it means a cake recipe!
And not just any cake…a festive, fun, fabulous and delicious cake!
(I don’t know a word that starts with ‘f’ that means delicious…anyone…anyone?)
I wanted to make something special for our New Year’s Eve party, and this Coconut Dream Cake was it!
Now say this out loud, and repeat it…”Coconut Dream Cake”
Doesn’t that just sound amazing?!
Now I warn you…I’m no cake decorata’, but I can bake a mean cake…
The fact that this recipe calls for toasted coconut for a finishing touch…now that’s just a life saver for us non-cake-decorating-types. Hides all the crumbs. And bumps. And gaps. And mismatched, mis-sized cakes.
I mean, it’s not what it looks like that counts…it’s how it tastes right?! 😉
Throw on some little toothpick sparklers…and your cake is gorgeous and ready for a New Years partaaaaaay! I realize it’s a little late for your party, but this would be a great dessert for your New Years Day dinner or a birthday!
(I made these pretty little embellishments with inspiration from a tutorial over at The 36th Avenue blog!)
Recipe adapted from The Looneyspoons.
I’m still in my jammies and my hair is not done, and our guests will be here in 2 hours!
I want to wish you all a very Happy New Year! May this upcoming year be your best!
See you in the New Year!
