Coconut Passion Cake

This week we worked on many layered cakes, but my favorite has to be this Coconut Passion Cake.  The swirled mirror glaze on top came out in perfect sunset colors… I think its name should be changed to “Sunset Cake”!  I’m pretty sure that most of us in Chicago could use some tart tie-dye colors like this in our lives right now.  Who needs clear skies when you have a slice of this?

The cake colors were a perfect contrast to this adorable baby-blue cupcake stand.  The color combination reminded me of some of my favorite sunsets in the Florida Keys.

My favorite layer was the candied pineapple… the fruit added some chewy texture to the smooth mousse.
