The Beginning...

It all started with the love of eating cake, pure and simple. Since childhood, I loved to watch my mother bake and help her when I could. She had an old sifter that looked like it came out of a museum but it sure did the trick to make some of the silkiest, tender cakes you can imagine. I remember waiting to lick the spoon and having to control myself from putting my little fingers in the bowl to steal a scrape of cake batter, even if her hand-mixer was roaring, as it was worth the risk. Fast forward several years and now I have a lovely husband who also likes cake...lots of if it. He randomly asks me one day to make a German Chocolate Cake and, while I was up for the challenge, I wasn't very hopeful because I don't care for coconut and figured he would be eating most of it. Still, I gave it a go back in 2015 and my recipe has been a hit ever since! Without even knowing, I am making coconut haters love these tasty, toasted flakes and accidentally created a family tradition along the way. Now, from my kitchen to yours, I couldn't be more excited to share what we make with you and your loved ones to enjoy and craft your own memories.
