TODAY IS NATIONAL COCONUT TORTE DAY!
Raise your hand if you don’t like coconut. Okay, you look silly, put it down. Most people’s objections mirror that of Tallahassee from Zombieland:
But it’s amazing! Think of how much we had to work, as a species, to uncover what coconut had in store for us. Who would have thought some gigantic, impenetrable, rock-shaped fruit could have had both sweet milk and tasty, funky-textured flesh? You might get annoyed with it stuck in your teeth, but that’s no reason to get mad. It’s reason to get braces. Or something.
In any case, this isn’t just about coconut. It’s about torte. It’s about SPom baking us this amazing coconut torte. What makes a cake a torte? Some people will tell you it’s about how the cake is made, or how the cake is layered, but honestly, we think it’s just people trying to be fancy.
Magnificent. A super moist cake (AK: “I think I like the cake more than the frosting!”) with some amazing coconut goodness spread throughout (SP: “mMmrrhmmmfmfmmMMmm”). Thanks, SPom!
Tomorrow we celebrate National Potato Chip Day as well as π (Pi) Day.
