Seeing as I’ve enjoyed all of my Christmases in the Southern Hemisphere, I’ve never had the pleasure of experiencing a White Christmas. It’s interesting — and difficult — to find a balance between the two types of festive seasons. While northerners are wearing ugly sweaters and drinking hot cocoa by the fireplace, us southerners are showing off our Christmas guts at the beach.
Leading up to Christmas, I really wanted to create something that’s relevant to both halves of the world. So what could be more perfect than a Coconut Christmas Cake? It’s perfect for northerners because it looks like a Winter Wonderland. Yet the tropical taste of coconut is perfect for the southerner’s warmer weather!
