Lime and Coconut Cake

Then I came across 'Fresh Lime and Coconut Cake' in Delia Smith's Cake book. by Delia Smith.

Gluten Free Christmas Cake with Amaretto Soaked Fruit

I couldn’t just invent a recipe out of thin air so turned to Delia Smith.

Alphabakes Roundup - March 2013 - I

Choclette from Chocolate Log Blog came across a Delia Smith recipe for an Iced Honey and Spice cake. The timing of this entry from Jen at Blue Kitchen Bakes was perfect – she used a semicircle cake pan to make an igloo cake – it’s a coconut sponge covered in white sugar paste
