Free choice #1 Heavenly Seduction Coconut Junior Mint Cake
I honestly thought I'd already made this cake when going over the list of remaining cakes Marie has made.
Since I had leftover coconut milk from the Manhattan Coconut Cake, it seemed like a good choice.
It's a very simple cake to make, especially if I would remember to put on my glasses for more than reading the recipe. Instead of reaching for coconut extract, I grabbed peppermint in an identical bottle. Needless to say, this cake tastes like Junior Mints, even with the coconut extract. Who doesn't love Junior Mints?
Since there are real coconut texture phobics in the family, I opted for shaved chocolate on the whipped cream which contained sweetened coconut milk in the whipped cream. They haven't noticed the pulverized coconut in the cake itself and they very much like it.
