On Christmas Day, my niece and I had a coconut cake throwndown!  Lindsay made the Barefoot Contessa’s Coconut Cake recipe and I used a version of the one that my Mother, Grandmother, and Great-Aunt made for years.  I forgot to take a picture of the cakes before cutting but here's Lindsay's:

And here's mine:

We even had scoresheets.

The judges were my dad, my brother, my nephew, and Lindsay’s dad and they took their jobs very seriously.

And the winner was.........Lindsay and the Barefoot Contessa's Coconut Cake recipe! I understand that it was close with only a few points separating the two.  One thing though.  We didn’t count on two coconut cakes being a LOT of coconut cake!
