Coconut milk layer cake

Oh wow! This is a very, very good cake! Coconut milk layer cake from Dan Lepard, which I made earlier today for beloved’s birthday. Beloved not particularly interested in celebrating but I made him a cake anyway.

Beloved likes coconut, hence the choice. While easy to make, I don’t have the required three sponge tins to bake it in so had to do one sponge and cut into three. Assembling not for the light hearted, as layers are sprinkled with lime juice and rum, and even though I had some tears in the top layer, I managed to cover it up with lots of buttercream icing. One more pic:

I was trying to find the recipe on the Guardian website but, unfortunately it hasn’t been published. There is, however a rather lovely sounding Coconut mascarpone cake so linking that instead.
