Squeeky3, I have a bottle of imitation coconut extract, made by Schilling. I don't recall the store where I found it, but it is out there somewhere. Good luck on your cake. Be sure to let us know how it turns out.
If you have knowledge, let others light their candles on it.
Never fear shadows. They simply mean there's a light shining somewhere nearby.
MacsMom, I made your Orange Dreamsicle into cupcakes, they are cooling on the counter. I was wondering what icing you recommend? Or anyone else who has made this cake/ used the recipe, send the suggestions. Thanks!
So I finally baked the Coconut Cake in cupcake form ....
They turned out so delicious! And the texture is so soft and moist, I absolutely love them. The toasted flakes really did the trick. I'm going to decorate them tomorrow so looking forward to trying them with filling and toppping! yum
Well crap, I guess it wasn't in the stars for me to make the coconut cupcakes. First I toasted the coconut in the toaster oven -- can you say "flaming coconut"? Then I decide to use the rest of the bag, I get that all set up and start on my liquid ingredients. Who knew coconut cream and coconut milk could go bad INSIDE the can??? Ah well... I guess it's time for strawberry cupcakes. Which works out well, I have pink icing made for roses next week in class.
