Coconut cake

The Jam says “Me eat?”

As both Dad and MiL are celebrating their birthdays today (121 years between them), I decided a cake was in order.  Luckily they both love coconut, so Nigella’s coconut cake was the obvious choice.  (It’s the one from How to be a Domestic Goddess with lashings of Malibu, not the first one that comes up when you do a Google search.)  The Jam helped – he likes mixing – and FiL helped him to help.  We had it in the oven before Dad, MiL or DH were out of bed!  The buttercream icing in the middle and the royal icing on top are made with the aforementioned Malibu, so I don’t think the Jam will be getting more than a nibble. Still need to buy some candles but it smells divine and looks pretty good – taste test still to come…
