Advent day 11: Coconut Snowman cake

The girls have a party today and everyone must bring something, so they are taking this snowman.

My girls are now worrying that everyone will bring snowmen. 

Girls, eh!

Coconut cake 

1/2 cup softened butter

3 eggs

2/3 cup sugar

100ml milk

1 tsp vanilla bean paste

the zest of a lime

1/2 cup coconut

1 1/3 cups flour

1 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp baking soda

1. Beat the 5 ingredients together, then mix in the remaining ingredients.

2. Bake in a pre - heated 180/ 350 oven for 18 - 25 minutes depending on your oven and cake tin size.

We doubled the recipe to make two 'snowballs' and the decorated with cream cheese frosting and topped with coconut.
