When my husband and I first began dating,he told me he liked coconut cake.One of my Aunt's made a wonderful coconut cake so I asked her for the recipe.So I couldn't decide which coconut cake to make for my new boyfriend,in the end,I made the toasted coconut cake. Wm looked at the cake strangely(later he told me that cake didn't look like his Mother's coconut cake but decided to try mine since I had gone to the trouble of making him a cake) Well,he tasted this cake and said that was the best cake he ever had! He teases me to this day,he asked me to marry him so he could have this cake anytime!
