Citrus Coconut Cake
125g softened butter
1 cup caster sugar
1 tbsp finely grated lemon rind
1 tbsp finely grated lime rind
2 eggs, lightly beaten
1 cup self raising flour, sifted
3/4 cup dessicated coconut
1 cup milk
Preheat oven to 180 degrees. Cream butter and sugar. Add lemon and lime rind. Add eggs, one at a time, beating between each addition. Fold flour and coconut into the mixture, alternating with milk. Spoon into greased loaf pan and bake for 45 mins. Dust with icing sugar (or add cream cheese frosting as I did).

These are the invites I made in keeping with the pink theme…
I made these Mini Raspberry Melting Moments as a trial for the day. They definitely passed the test and have made it onto my ‘menu’. I love that the icing is naturally coloured by the raspberries!
I am hoping to have a main table decorated mainly in pink and white to display all the food. Amy Atlas’s dessert tables have provided lots of inspiration for this. I’ll post some pictures of what up come up with after next weekend.
