Coconut Surprise Cookies

  I have had such a busy weekend of baking and I am loving my newest creation, especially these clean coconut surprise cookies. So you’re probably wondering what exactly the ‘surprise’ is.

We were so lucky to stay at one of the best hotels in Ubud, Komaneka Bisma.

Carrot Cake with Vanilla Bean Cream

I would love to tell you that I gave away this cake to my friends and family… but the truth is, I definitely ate most of it. At least three quarters… By now it’s no secret that this clean…
