Day 50: Mango Cake

Finally, we are at day 50! I can't believe this has been going on for so long! All I can say is I'm excited for day 100! 😏 Another thing I'm excited about is this cake: A mango cake. Full of the tropical mango flavor from not only the frosting but the cake itself as well!

All 50 posts!

6. Easy. Steps. It does take a while but come on! It's sooo worth it.

I know 6 eggs, is A LOT! But it gives the cake a lot of texture.

Once you've baked your two cakes, frost the first cake. Then add some mangoes over it.

Fun Fact: Mangoes are yellow because the tree that which the mangoes grow on have a substance called "carotene". Carotene reflects yellow and orange light and it absorbs the blue.

Getting the sides of the cake are pretty hard, you want to use a lot of the frosting on mostly the sides.

You can make a numbers or words out of mangoes! 🤯

For any occasion you make this cake, I will guarantee it will be a showstopper!

STEPS:

In a stand mixer beat eggs, mango, and sugar. Slowly add the coconut, flour, baking powder, salt, butter, and coconut extract. Pour into the cake pan and bake for 30-40 minutes.
