Vanilla Chiffon White Cake with Grated Coconut - Martha Stewart

Alex and my wedding cake was well-intentioned but ultimately disappointing , the obvious product of all the shortcuts bakeries get themselves into when quantity trumps quality. In the same way that I believe that everyone deserves a cake baked with a symphony of butter, eggs, flour and devotion on their birthday , a wedding cake should be all that and more. No mystery-ingredient toppings, no highly unnatural silver dust, no fake cake for display with a sheet cake in the back for serving.
