Congratulations!! I knew you were going to win! If cake could be sent by mail we would wait by the door, fork in one hand, cup of coffee in the other, for our tastes. But we shall settle for a posting of the full recipe, and a photo of the ribbon, trophy, whatever you won!

Congrats again!

Yeah it's pretty crazy here right now...of course it's almost midnight so I can't whoop it up too much, will wake my 4 year old....but I have perma-grin and even though I'm exhausted, I'll never get to sleep!

The coconut I use is chipped coconut, I get it at this little Mennonite store in my area, I get a lot of baking and decorating supplies there. I'm not sure where else one might find it....mail order? Next time I'm up there I will ask where they get it.

Thanks again you guys! icon_biggrin.gif

Oh by the way....all the champion entries are sold at auction after the judges tasting. The coordinator told me mine was sold for $100!!!! Proceeds go to support our local 4-H. WAY COOL!!!

But hey - don't despair. If any one of you happens to find yourself in my area, just give me a call and there will be coconut cake for you for sure. Coffee too!

I think I finally got to sleep about 3....and was abruptly awakened by a thunderstorm at 7...which woke up my son.....so now I'm up like it or not!

That's OK - my son gets a nap after lunch, I'll take one too!

Woke up this AM wondering if I'd dreamed it.

Congratulations! If your cake tasted as good as it looked, I'm not surprised you won!

I am a newbie here and am so amazed at everything I read every day--the quick responses when a call goes out for help, the sharing of recipes and tips, and the genuine delight members find in the success of others. What an amazing community! icon_smile.gif

I went up to the little shop where I buy it yesterday. The gal didn't know the name of the distributor, but she said they do mail order, all you have to do is call them. Their web site is www.martinsfarmmarket.net.

Otherwise, I'm going to google and see what I can find!

Congrats on your win and good luck for the state fair. Will you make the exact same cake for that one?
