Sundays With Sparky: Cake-Palooza! (Lime In The Coconut Cake, Minecraft Cake, Xbox Cupcakes)

For our family, August is filled with cake.  Nearly every family celebration happens in August for us, and since I love baking and crafting, we pull out all the stops and try to make each cake special.  Since we have so many and they are mostly about process, I’m not going to detail the recipes, just the techniques.  We will go in order of deliciousness….Enjoy!

Recipe information –

For Lime in the Coconut Cake
Lime Chiffon Cake (I substituted lime juice for the water)
Key Lime Filling (chilled and whipped but used unfrozen)
Coconut Cream Topping (I added a bit of lime juice and 1/8 tsp of gelatin powder)

For Minecraft Cake

Velvet Cake (no red) Cake flour is critical to the success of the recipe (AP flour made my cake tough and spongy.) Substitute water for the red food coloring
Mascarpone Whipped Cream Frosting
