My First Cake!

I didn't get into cooking and baking until just a few years ago. I've made cakes before but always from a box mix! This was my first attempt at making an actual cake from scratch AND frosting it! The occasion was my hubby's birthday. The cake was Ina Garten's Coconut Cake. It was a project for sure, but the end result was tasty!!
