I’m super excited to try out some new recipes and you will get to follow me on the wedding cake journey for the next few months, whoop whoop. So one of the layers that I suggested was a coconut and lime cake, one I’ve never made before, but sure it can’t be that hard, right? Famous last words, I will never learn, haha.
