Best birthday cake ever!

Who doesn’t love a pretty, girly cake on her birthday? But when that cake is so fresh, so moist, so subtle in its sweetness, so perfect in its textural consistency that it is a true work of dessert art – that is a birthday cake worth taking a man-sized slice of  (and worth going back for a second slice or two after everyone’s gone home!)! Amy’s Bread never ceases to impress with their uncanny ability to bake their never-cloying, adult flavored layer cakes that need sweet icing to balance the subtlety of their truly perfect flavors. In this case, delicious yellow cake with a very subtle coconut flavor, silky pastry cream filling, coconut custard frosting – all topped with shredded coconut. Yum. Yum. And double yum. J – you are the absolute bestest!

    HAPPY HAPPY BIRTHDAY MARGARET!! Looks like Joy brought the joy – and sweetness – as always. This coconut delight looks scrumptious against your signature blue.

    I absolutely HAVE to know where you got that cake stand from! I’ve been looking for one like that for years! 🙂

    • We got it in lovely New Preston, CT. Not sure of the shop’s name, as it was a few years back. The shop had many Swedish antiques and sold both new and antique objects – very well curated. This one was new. It’s only 7 & 1/4″ in diameter and the name on the bottom says “Frances Palmer” – hope you find one!
