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:
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!
