Mission Control, we have cake! Yes, it arrived all the way from Springfield, Mo. As you may remember, my wonderful friend Glenna of A Fridge Full Of Food...But Nothing To Eat baked a cake and sent it overnight delivery to moi. The picture doesn't do it justice, and it's really tragic that you can't taste the tender white cake and lucious coconut buttercream. Glenna always tells me that she learned from her mother how to cook a proper white cake, so that it's light as a cloud. Now I understand what she was talking about. It's the best white cake I've ever tasted. And coconut cake is not something I ever make, but I will now. This recipe will become a standard for me.
Feel free to sign me up for the Cake Of The Month Club, Glenna. Thanks a million times over. By the way folks, go see Glenna's cake shaped like a a loaf of bread. People at her party thought it really was a loaf of bread--until they discovered it was a dreamy coconut cake.
