Coconut, Mocha, and Peanut Butter Cake

Last week I had a customer request a cake for her boyfriend’s birthday. Some of his favorite flavors include coconut, coffee, peanut butter, and pistachios. I don’t think I’ve ever incorporated these flavors in a cake before, let alone a combination of them! It was a fun challenge and in the end we were able to use three of the 4. This six inch cake had 4 layers of vanilla cake brushed with coconut milk, filled with 3 layers of peanut butter Swiss meringue buttercream, then covered with mocha Swiss meringue buttercream (made with blue bottle coffee) and finished off with a light layer of toasted coconut. Phew!

Do you need a cake for a special occasion, or maybe no occasion at all? All Matchbox Kitchen cakes are made with organic flour, sugar, eggs, and milk. Customer favorites include carrot cake with cream cheese swiss meringue buttercream, fresh strawberries and cream, and triple chocolate cake. Our cakes are never too sweet and only use the highest quality ingredients. For more information, email me at sara AT matchboxkitchen.com (Delivery available within Los Angeles area.)
