Bake Off

What a wonderful day. The ladies out did themselves with their coconut cakes and recipes from the 'Scrappy Ladies Recipes' cookbook. My gosh I don't think I need to eat anything for a week!!!!
All the cakes were delicious.

Here are the cake baking ladies. We have Nan standing in for her husbands' cake.

Of course all the wonderful dishes they prepared was outrageous. Not a bad recipe in the whole cookbook.

I am glad I was not a judge. Thanks to all the judges for their time to judge these great cakes. The choice for the best Coconut Cake was Number 5.

This cake was Glenda's cake. It just happened to be an old family recipe combined with a newer version frosting.

So you all can drool I will post the various recipes for each cake. Today I am posting the winning cake recipe.

Coconut Cake:

1 Duncan Hines Yellow Butter Cake Mix
2 cups (16 oz.) sour cream
2 (6 oz.) pkgs. frozen coconut
2 cups Sugar

Prepare and bake cake according to package directions. Use 3 pans (8 or 9 inch round pans).
Cool in pans for 10 minutes before removing to complete cooling on wire racks.


Make filling the day before you bake your cake.

Combine sour cream and sugar.
Stir in coconut (filling will be soft).

Set aside 1 cup for icing.

Cut each cooled cake layer horizontally.
You started with three layers. Now you will have six layers.
Divide filling between the six layers.


1-8 ounce container of Cool Whip

Fold reserved filling into Cool Whip.
Frost top and sides with frosting.
Refrigerate cake overnight.
Cake is best after a day or two.

I will post another of the cake recipes tomorrow.

Again, thank you all for coming and participating in a fun day.

Better pack up my little girl and head home.

See you at the shop.
