june cake: coconut cake with coconut lime glaze & coconut cream cheese icing

we celebrated father's day with a wonderful afternoon of boating, skiing & swimming with dolphins in the river, followed by an evening of eatin' fried chicken & the best cake I've made all year (at least according to my critics). 

if you like coconut, I highly recommend this cake recipe. it was light & refreshing & fairly simple to put together. a perfect father's day cake for the perfect father & grandfather!

gender cake pops

I made bakerella's cake pops for a baby shower last week (and also some for an adorable first birthday for a very sweet little boy). the couple is keeping the gender a surprise (I love that!), so I thought it would be fun to make the cake pop filling a surprise, too. for the "boy" cake pops, I used a vanilla recipe and added blue food coloring. and for the "girl" cake pops, I made red velvet cake (although next time I'll probably use vanilla cake and dye it pink). people had fun predicting their future baby's gender. and the couple both got blue cake pops on their first try, so we're convinced it's a boy. robert says the cake pops don't lie.

summertime snack

need a quick, easy & refreshing snack for summer? wrap some paper-thin slices of prosciutto around pieces of ripe melon. the sweet + salty flavor is delicious!
