  • Sugar comes in different forms, granulated, icing or syrup, you can see that the sweetener shelf at the supermarket is interesting if you're sweet tooth like me^^.
  • I love to read the label and thinking about what I can do with them (anyway because of this habit, I always end up buying more than I want, ^^"). But more variations means you have more chance to play, hehe. Each of them has different taste and characteristic, use them in different kinds of sweet can be fun and challenging. When I smell and taste this coconut sugar, I really want to do something with it. The smell is so sweet and the sweetness is rich and full, most of the time it has been used for cooking and making traditional Thai desserts. But with its deliciousness, why can't it be in different place of the kitchen. So, I try to think about what I want to do with it, the best way to bring its sweet fragrance and warm sweet into bake goods.
  • Finally I choose to use it in cake, because the amount of the sugar in the cake and buttercream will be enough to give it a center role. I use it both in the cake, and buttercream, for cake, the coconut sugar makes the cake moist with lovely fragrance, while buttercream is easy to make as it melts easily. Because it made from coconut, I think the best companion for this cake will be the coconut ^^. I put 3 different kinds of coconut into this cake, first the coconut liquor (I use Malibu), the fragrance from this liquor make the coconut more pronouncing (anyway, if you don't want to use alcohol you can skip this). Then the coconut flesh, gives the cake rich taste, try buying the one with soft flesh. the last one is the desiccated coconut, that I roasted them in the pan to release the warmly fragrance and use them for decorating the cake.
  • I know that when use the word "sugar" for the name of the cake, some people will turn their face away thinking that it must be too sweet, but this cake is not that sweet, the coconut sugar is be there to show itself not to overwhelm. You can enjoy it with a cup of hot tea (and dreaming about the lovely beach if you want, haha).
