You will also need:
Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease and flour two 9-inch round cake pans
Cream together the butter and sugar until smooth. Add the eggs, one at a time. Add the vanilla.
In a separate bowl, mix together dry ingredients, and then add the mixture, and the milk, to the batter. Add shredded coconut.
Pour the batter into the pans and bake for 45 minutes. Let cool.
Once the cakes are cool, use a fork to make 15-20 holes in both cakes. Pour the condensed milk evenly on both cake, and let it soak into the cake. Repeat with the coconut milk.
Prepare frosting by mixing together cream cheese, butter, confectioner’s sugar, and vanilla. Add coconut at the end, or you can choose not to add it to the frosting and simply pat it on top of the cake once it is frosted.
I love the holidays — every holiday you can think of — so I bet you can imagine that Thanksgiving to Christmas is a magical time for me. When else do you get a tree inside your house? The tree smells good, you can put pretty things on it, and you can sit by it and talk to it and hug it.
I love the holidays. I love every single thing having to do with every single holiday. Try and ask me and I promise you won’t find anything I don’t like. Fireworks? Love them! Four leaf clovers? Love them! Hearts and diamonds? Love them! Partridges and pear trees? Cornbread stuffing? Puking up cornbread stuffing after your 8th serving? I love it all! I even read those crazy letters people send out in their Christmas cards. I don’t just read them, I become engrossed and have to know more about Sally’s doll collection (how long did it take to collect all 15 Gone With The Wind characters?!?! I need to know!!) In mid June I don’t even care that Sally has a name and breathes oxygen; Christmas REALLY gets me going.
I should mention that my birthday falls right between Thanksgiving and Christmas, on December 12th. In lieu of gifts, please send more holidays.
I love table-scapes, I love wrapping paper, I love ice skating, I love holiday music. Bing Crosby, I’m your gal. When you find Christmas, you find me; when you find me, you find Christmas.
I love giving the tree a little late night snack of hot water and maple syrup. I talk to the tree and tell him things I couldn’t tell any others. I love the holidays.
