First Scottie I have to get a dome type cake pan then I will be ready. Going to look in some of these collection of cook books I have here. Surely that cake baker is not the only person who has ever made that cake. But darn it that cake really looks like I want some right now . I am a coconut person and as long as there is coconut in some thing I will take it even coconut shrimp.

I was wondering how the home baker would get the coconut custard into the cake. Yeah, it's pricey.

Birddrops don't you think that is a lot of money for a cake? The cake alone is $48. almost $49. plus shipping Wow that is a lot in my thinking. how much could it cost to make it I wonder.

Cater, that cake is 4 lbs 12 oz for 48.96 with free shipping. A little too rich for my blood. I think a cake like that would be relatively easy to make. I wonder if you could bake it in a stainless steel mixing bowl, and then cut the layers.

As an aside, on the Sweet Endings website the cake is seven lbs for $60.00 plus shipping. Sure looks good though.

Re: Jill's ""moment"" with that cake

Thank you Scottie I will definitely be making this pie. This looks like it will be a hit with my family. I'd make it tonight but some here has gone to bed and I don't want to be making a bunch of noise out here in my kitchen.

Birddrops I have every size of stainless steel bowls but I never tried to bake in one of them I wonder if it would work to bake in them.

I just talked to my sister on the phone and she said ""when you going to make it?"" I said soon so I guess this weekend I will make this pie and try to figure out the cake.

Well, I don't know what cake you are talking about, but baking a cake in a stainless steel bowl sounded so odd, I just looked it up. Yep, who knew?
