Heavenly Cake - Free Choice - Heavenly Coconut Seduction Cake


This lovely cake gives a nice presentation. Several family members commented how fancy it looked. It tasted pretty good too. The whipped cream was not to heavy and the cake had a nice coconut flavor. Although it was a bit dense as Rose warns and perhaps a tad on the dry side. Although I did make a double recipe so perhaps I miscalculated somewhere.

Some kind of cake type potion...

Talcum powder...

Yeah, verily, the thick sludge of life we must all trudge through...

A pauper gazes at the cake in the window...

I hear Antarctica is nice this time of year...

 Perhaps I went a bit heavy on those pina-coladas...


  1. Mendy, it's so funny that we chose the same cake. Yours looks great! I thought about doing 2 layers, but I wasn't sure how well the whipped icing would support the second layer.

  2. I'm glad to see some posts on this one, because I've *almost * made it a couple of times. I like the two-layer version--very pretty!

  3. great commentary! if the thick sludge of life really looks like that then i think we'll be ok...

  4. Mendy, love the Antartica comment! The cake looks great. I'm amazed you double the recipe (I usually halve it).

  5. My daughter wants me to make this! Your's turned out lovely! Mendy, did you see the Star of David cake pan on sale at William Sonoma?

  6. That sure looks pretty alright! Too bad I can't eat coconut :o(

  7. Mendy Your cake looks great. Did you get my link about the Star of David cake pan on sale at William Sonoma? It's really pretty.

  8. Ohh man... this cake is calling my name... I think I'm putting it down for our next Free Choice.. except the Golden Almond Lemon Cake one is calling me louder!
