Vanilla Coconut Cream Cake

          My toddler was drooling for a cake after watching the masterchef of Starplus in which Chef Sanjeev Kapoor's birthday was being celebrated.He was badly craving for a cake.I felt bad for the baby.Otherwise he is least interested in cakes.I asked him if he wants a cake now.He was like yes,I want it now.
           Just after the show,I started preparing the cake for my toddler.By 11 at night I finished the work of my cake.Believe me,it tasted awesome.My toddler is too fond of cutting birthday cakes but his father seldom allow him to do so.So I thought of celebrating a fake birthday function just for kidding.We gave him a knife and clicked pics and he fed us cakes and we too fed him.It was fun with my little boy smiling happily that his wish was done.

    1. First cut the cake horizontally.
    2. Then apply the coconut cream on the lower cake piece.
    3. Now keep the other piece on top and Cover it with whipped cream.
