Simple Coconut Cake


Yesterday was Easter. As I was growing up, my Granny always had a family get together on Easter and she would always make a yummy, delicious coconut cake that she would decorate to look like a bunny. Sadly, my Granny doesn't have those family get togethers anymore, but my sister was coming over with my nephew and we planned on playing games and having fun. I was craving that coconut cake so bad yesterday that I decided to make my own version and it turned out so good! Scroll down for the written recipe and instructions.

Coachella is starting tomorrow and I've been seeing a lot of different styles and accessories that people intend on wearing to this huge music event in California.

Like the scarf I was inspired by, you can wear this lightweight and lacey scarf as a scarf, headband or a belt.
