Like Coconut Cake?

Like Coconut Cake?

If you love coconut cake as much as I do, let me suggest this luscious combo from Nugget.  It's the Angel Coconut Cake, featuring a white cake with a hint of rum, toasted organic coconut flakes and whipped topping, but... with the crushed pineapple filling, which is the standard filling in the Slice of the Islands Coconut Cake.   You have to special order this, because it's a combination of two separate cakes.  Got that?  Let's review, it's the Angel Coconut Cake, but w/ the Pineapple Filling, a lovely addition to any Mother's Day or birthday celebration.  Yum!

What would you use it for?


I was thinking this would be fabulous for my own personal needs to make it a tad wider and use it for filing and paper!

My dad was a backyard farmer, as was his father before him and my Irish great-grandfather before him (although he had an actual farm!). I remember my grampa’s deep, narrow lot in San Francisco where he grew corn. My dad grew asparagus and planted fruit trees and vegetables in Southern California, my mom canned. My brother and I sold avocados door to door. Small wonder I fancy gardening. It’s my heritage. Read more.
