Baby Showers of Pink Cakes
Why don't cake orders get spread out more evenly? This week and next I have THREE baby shower cakes to make. And they're all girls! Now granted, they are wildly different in style but it still makes for an interesting week.
The first is for a Moroccan themed baby shower. The original recipe I was asked to make was indeed titled "Moroccan Coconut Cake" but it sounded nasty with soft ball sugar base, coconut, condensed milk, lemon, and other things to make gelatinous little cubes. So I proposed to make a regular coconut cake and they were OK with that. I did the research and came up with this great recipe called Coconut Throwdown Cake by Bobby Flay of Food Network. What a cool recipe! The filling was divine, and even though the ingredients were expensive and it took some time to make it was totally worth it. I'm glad everyone at the shower enjoyed it!
