Graham Coconut Caramel Cake

I have not made a cake for fun in a while. The problem with having a whole cake sitting around the house is I will eat a whole cake. I know I will. I have seen me do it. So, generally I do not make cakes to keep around the house, but I was feeling domestic the other day, and I was also feeling rather nostalgic.

Chocolate Mint Filled Shortbread Snowballs

Get ready, I am going to get my whine on.  I know it is the holidays, but I am not feeling it. First off, my tree is 99% decorated.  I am afraid of heights, and my tree requires the use of a ladder to decorate the top.  I have not screwed up my courage (or the energy if I am truthful) to get the ladder out and brave what will be almost certain death.  Second, I have only one batch of cookies baked.  Usually they are all packed up in...
