Today’s been busy, but I have a very exciting (!) cake to tell you about. It’s called Four Day Coconut Cake and I’m on Day 2.
This is a perfect cake for when you are busy, because you can do it in spurts. The steps involve making a mixture of sour cream, sugar and frozen coconut and letting it sit for day, then baking a yellow layer cake, stacking the filling between layers and letting the cake sit in the refrigerator for at least 3 days. As I mentioned, I’m on Day 2 and debating whether or not to bake a scratch yellow cake or just buy a mix.
I’m really concerned about the stacking, because this coconut mixture appears extremely runny. I’m wondering why no one has made this as a sheet cake, poked holes in the sheet cake and poured the coconut stuff over like in one of those old “Stripe it Rich!” cakes. Gosh, maybe I should have made that.
Anyway, I’ll report back when I get this cake under control.
