Each month the blog has a competition, I entered last months on fantasy food with a bath of my Pop Biscuits, though sadly for me I missed the deadline! I was determined not to repeat the mistake this time, although when I first read the theme of 'Spring Greens' I didn't have the slightest bit of inspiration.
And then it came to me. Coconut Lime cake. I've been wanting to have a crack at this Delia recipe for a while, and this seemed the perfect opportunity. We had a fresh coconut in the fridge so I grated that up to go in, but unfortunately didn't have the coconut milk powder (or any Malibu to add coconutty-ness). It smelt heavenly as it baked, and my three year old was tempted to steal a piece as it cooled. Cheeky! I thought it might go well with a cream cheese frosting, so googled until I came across this Key Lime Frosting recipe, and made that with my rather mundane bottle of lime juice. I tossed a little dessicated coconut in Apple Green food colouring and scattered it over the top. Voila! A spring meadow that only wanted for a few sugar flowers to make it perfect.
