Coconut Cake

For Easter, I wanted to make a coconut cake like my Aunt Lenie use to make for me when I was a kid.  It was the BEST!

I had no idea how hard it would be to find large coconut flakes for my cake, but finally at the fifth store my search ended in success.

My Coconut Cake with Coconut Buttercream was deletable, but not as good as my Aunt Lenie's.  So, my quest for my aunts' coconut cake will continue.

No Cooking Class

Today, I was suppose to take a cooking class with a great local chef, however, he had to cancel.

So, to make myself feel better, I tried a new recipe for lunch.

Thai Coconut Shrimp Soup

The recipe tasted bland, so I added cilantro and lime juice to brighten up the flavors.  Now it is a wonderful tasting soup!
