You’ll need one recipe of cake batter (I used yellow, you could use whatever you like,) frosting, flaked coconut, and silicone baking pans in half circle molds (I bought mine from Amazon.)

Make cake batter and grab an ice cream scoop (so much easier than a spoon or measuring cup.)

Filling cake pan

Fill with cake batter and bake about 15 minutes, until a toothpick inserted in the center of a cake comes out clean.

Perfect Half Cakes

Cool the cakes for about 10 minutes and then slide a knife along the top of the pan to even out the tops.

Smear one side with frosting, or even fill with a little jam, and join two halves together.

This is the messier part–you have to coat the outside with frosting (it’s easier if the frosting is a little softer.)

I dyed the coconut by add two drops of food color to two cups of coconut and shaking them in a covered jar until it was lightly pink (or blue, green, etc.)

Roll the frosted cake in coconut flakes.
