Coconut Raspberry Cake

Happy birthday, Alex!

Last Thursday, we celebrated Alex’s birthday the best way we know how. We ate this coconut raspberry cake for breakfast and then spent the entire day at Disneyland. [If you follow me on Snapchat (username: littleepicurean) you would have seen all our Disney shenanigans…like how crazy competitive I am at Toy Story Midway Mania and how our night ended with AAA helping us change Alex’s car battery in the Disneyland parking lot.]
