INSANE TOASTED COCONUT MARSHMALLOW CAKE!!!
for making the totally awesome s'mores cake for my little brother back in march,sweet and sara sent me a box of free vegan marshmallow products!so i thought i better one up myself.
toasted coconut marshmallow cake made with sweet and sara vegan toasted coconut marshmallows.i made two layers of vanilla coconut cake with a recipe given to me by kt(of uh y'know that shmitty little bakery in portland)and modified it slightly,a layer of melted down marshmallows as frosting in the center,vanilla coconut cream cheese frosting encasing the cake,more melted marshmallows in top,and some whole marshmallows.then the entire thing was rolled in toasted coconut.
i think it's my second favourite cake ever.second because first has to somehow incorporate peanut butter.seriously,so good.even the plain cake part was awesome.
i brought some to sian and ben at earthsave and had to take it on the bus and this old guy started asking me about it and i had i knife so i offered him a slice and he ate some and then went on for ten minutes about how much he loooves coconut,and how nester's sells a cheap coconut cream pie made with real whipping cream and safeway's is more expensive and is just made with chemicals,and how he ate a bounty bar before he got on the bus,then explained every part of a bounty bar and then told me all about how one day i'll make a great wife.ha.
Dear Sweet and Sara,
if you ever need a baker,or think about starting a line of marshmallow baked goods and want to hire me,i am wide open.
