Hi Everyone!
  Yes it is very late - but my sister and I just finished our two office cakes for St. Patty’s day!
The sheet cake is a chocolate cake with the classic egg white butter cream with Baily’s butter cream.  The round cake is a coconut chocolate cake also with Baily’s butter cream (classic egg white butter cream). 
  It is not the best we have done - but it isn’t bad.  Thoughts!

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!!!!

Thanks!
I am a big fan of the Hersey’s chocolate cake recipe on the back of the coco powder. So instead of Vanilla extract i used coconut, and also added coconut flakes. For the butter cream i used Rose’s classic egg-white chocolate cream (without the chocolate) and added about 6-7 teaspoons of Baily’s Irish Cream - i didn’t want it to overpowering. Of course i used the green coloring from Americolor (i do love their colors so much more than Wilton!).
So far my office enjoyed the cake - there is only a 1/4 left - waiting to hear from my sister!!
