We celebrated our youngest daughter's 2nd birthday this weekend. I tested out this new Coconut Cream Cake - I took a bit of a chance because it was my first test run on both the cake and the frosting, but it did not disappoint!
Not only did our birthday girl hoover the cake, but my sister and her family loved it too. We just had a small get together with sis, her hubby and their son, because at 2 years old... well, that's enough excitement for our girl!
Here is a slice of the cake, it was very moist with a creamy, mallowy frosting. I very rarely make sugary/buttery frostings. Simply because I want to eat these frostings, but I feel gross (tired/sick) after eating more than a few bites. And for me, cake is ALL about the frosting - I like lots, and so I don't want to stop at a couple of bites. So, pile on the creamy, less-sweet frostings... that's right up my street!
Our older daughter ate a little cake, but unlike our 2 year old (and me), she has more of a 'salty tooth'. After a few bites of cake, she dug into a 'recipe' she recently created - and I must add - is extremely proud of. It involves grapes, Goddess Dressing, and nutritional yeast ("parmesan" to her). It goes as follows: (1) mix the Goddess Dressing with the "parmesan" (2) roll the grape in the mixture (3) pop in mouth and say 'mmmmm'.
Do you have a hankering for that now? Yeah, probably not. Though, I must admit that I do actually like the 1st step - nutritional yeast and Goddess Dressing actually taste pretty fine together. It's the grape part - but then, as my sister pointed out, how many of us put raisins or cranberries or something else that's sweet in a salad and then drizzle on the Goddess Dressing? Our munchkin might be on to something after all...
