October is birthday month for me and right around each birthday i get nostalgic. Coconut brings back childhood memories for me. Attempts at climbing up the tree, which i failed miserably at. Waiting in anticipation as the fibrous husk of the fresh coconut is skillfully cut with a sharp knife. Drinking fresh coconut water and using the shell of the coconut to eat the soft fruit. This vanilla bean coconut cupcake has the a triple dose of coconut in it, coconut milk, desicatted coconut and coconut flakes. My love for coconut is that strong and fierce, lol.

Happy October!! The countdown has began to my birthday.

I love doughnuts they are my guilty pleasure. Glazed doughnuts, sugar coated donuts, apple filled doughnuts, custard doughnuts, i will eat them.  Jam doughnuts not so much. My favorite though is custard filled doughnuts. God bless whoever invented them. Is it doughnuts or donuts? I wonder, i get confused.

The coffee mornings are held to raise money for people living with cancer. This year I made this yellow cake and donated it for the coffee morning to be sold to parents and teachers and raise money.
