okay so I bake and decorate cakes... and I happened to use coconut on my last cake that i baked for my sister's birthday, and I dyed it blue... had plenty of left over blue coconut... of course i couldn't do much with blue dyed coconut and i was searching for recipes and happen to come across this... made it right away... it turned out delicious and blue made it look gorgeous, very easy and quick recipe yummy to taste... perfect for snacks... i used vanilla flavoring instead of almond and it was amazing... definitely recommend it to everyone!!!
