It's funny because when my first book came out in 1999, the very first recipe said "I wish someone would make me one of these for my birthday." My best friend, "You know. You're going to now get them all the time for your birthday."
Flash forward to ten years later and not ONE PERSON had made me this cake. Tonight is Romain's birthday so I made one for him. He doesn't know what coconut cake even is. *sigh*
...although he certainly deserves it for putting up with a lot! : )
