Today is a good day. Not just because I purchased tickets to see my favorite Italian Grandpa perform in London later this fall, but because there is leftover coconut cake from this weekend.
Saturday was an old friend’s birthday. He and his joined us and ours for aperol spritzes and a Mexican feast I spent two days preparing. To top it all off, I made Mr. Peacock‘s famous coconut layer cake. The recipe is on Better Homes and Gardens if you want to check it out. There is even a helpful video of him walking you through each step. I recommend it. The only modification I made was using the fresh coconut milk in lieu of water for the syrup that goes in the icing. Also, yesterday, I served the cake with sliced mango. ‘Twas a winning combination.
