With crisp raspberry meringue kisses and fresh buttercream.

Coconut cake – check. White chocolate ganache icing – check. Layers of raspberry Swiss meringue buttercream – check check. This rosy layered cake by One Perfect Mess ticks all the boxes for a lick-the-plate-clean tower of deliciousness, and just when you think it can’t get any scrummier, you’ll find a crown of meringue kisses sitting on top.

To accompany you while you embark on your next culinary quest, we’ve cooked up some lovely kitchen merch, including three colourful tea towels and a flower-power apron. The designs are pulled straight from the pages of the frankie 2022 diary, which is full of vintage kitchen-inspired artwork by Pilgrim Hodgson. Find the lot over at the frankie shop.
