Love a party? February brings you three “excuses” to have one! And Baker’s Coconut — with its pennywise glamour- – brings you three ways to splurge on a shoestring!
Lacy pink glamour on a thrifty Valentine cake. Snowdrift beauty on a Washington’s Birthday pie. Tempting white fluffiness on a homemade sundae to serve on Lincoln’s Birthday — or any “special” day.
Use creamy-moist Baker’s Coconut to add luscious new taste excitement to thrifty puddings, fruits, salads.
“Be My Valentine” Cake
Bake a thrifty cake with Swans Down Instant White Cake Mix following directions on box. Then spread with a luscious coconut frosting. For square cake pictured, use 1/2 frosting recipe on Baker’s Coconut package, cooked only 4 minutes instead of 7.
Spread top and sides of cake with frosting and sprinkle with flavor-fresh Baker’s Coconut tinted pink. Decorate with small red gumdrops arranged in heart shape.
To tint coconut. Place 1 cup Baker’s Coconut in a glass jar. Sprinkle a few drops of diluted red food coloring over coconut. Cover jar and shake vigorously until coloring is evenly distributed.
Washington’s Birthday Pie
Prepare coconut cream pie filling using recipe on Baker’s Premium Shred Coconut package. Cool. Pour into baked pie shell. Top with whipped cream and sprinkle with snowy Baker’s Coconut. Garnish with maraschino cherry halves and mint leaves.
Lincoln’s Birthday Sundae
Serve strawberry ice cream with chocolate sauce. Drift generously with tender, fresh Baker’s Coconut. Decorate with red, white and blue striped ribbons tied on toothpicks.
