A work of "heart"

I decided to make a coconut cake for a baby shower I'm co-hosting this evening. The picture in the magazine where I got the recipe looked fabulous. Mine is a little more lumpy--needless to say, I do not plan to become a professional baker anytime soon. The hardest part was trying to coat the sides with coconut--how does one do this gracefully?! I ended up kind of tossing the coconut at the sides of the cake, making a game out of seeing how much would stick. The other humorous thing is that, according to the recipe, this little cake will produce 18 servings. Yeah, right. I have a feeling our little pack of 6 will make quite a dent in this tonight!
