With the recent holidays, I knew I was going to have some baking to do. I thought making a coconut cake would be a good idea for my husband and father. For two people which have everything, it is hard to find them just the right gift. This year, I chose to bake them a home-made coconut cake for their Christmas gift. Santa must have known I was out of coconut. That same day, I received a package from Tropical Traditions with the shredded coconut I have been waiting for. The cake turned out wonderful, and the reviews by the men were out of this world. After that kind of reception, I decided to go through the sites’ recipes, and I chose to make macaroons, which were surprisingly easy to make and so yummy. I have more baking to do, and with five boys in this house, they can put away some food.
