Stephen's sister and niece have a tradition of baking a birthday cake for Baby Jesus every year at Christmas and this year I volunteered to help. After finding a recipe for a lemon-filled coconut cake we were set.
I would just like to say that the recipe called for everything to be made from scratch - batter, lemon-filling AND frosting. Without the aid of my new Kitchen-Aid mixer, which came the next day, I managed to bang out a three layer, lemon-filled coconut cake. Personally, I have a feeling that's what won over his family.
