Until five years ago, Marlene Baker had never put beaters to batter. Luckily, Baker—the self-taught creator of A Cup a Cake’s golden, delicate coconut rum cakes—is a quick study. Baker makes her confections with coconut oil, coconut cream, and fresh local eggs, and finishes the whole thing with a generous dousing of Bahamian coconut rum. Miniature cakes are $6 at Avondale Estates Farmers Market and Roswell’s Sweet Apple. Order full-sized cakes for $40. acupacake@aol.com
