Fresh Coconut Layer Cake

Reviewed: Jul. 5, 2005
This cake is fabulous....However, I would change a few things next time. The frosting is overwhelmed with the taste of butter. I would cut the butter in half and add more cream cheese. I believe the filling would benefit from lemon flavoring and grated lemon peel. I did have to use twice the amount of cornstarch...luckily, I followed my hunches as the filling would have been too runny otherwise. The cake itself was exceptional...I only made two layers instead of three and they were ready in exactly 20 minutes. Overall, I would reduce the amount of sugar all around as it seemed far too sweet for my taste. Grating the coconut by hand was a chore....but oh, so worth it! This cake looked beautiful when it was presented and people were literally gushing....A true "suzy homemaker moment"!

Wild Mushroom Stuffing

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2004
This was by far the best stuffing I have ever made or eaten! I recommend it wholeheartedly. I called all over town to get the egg bread and tracked down one bakery who had it in stock before Thanksgiving, and it was worth the hunt. I did cut down the amount of bread by about 1/4 as I didn't want it too 'bready', and I forgot to toast the hazlenuts but to no detrimental effect. Loved it!
