I made a cake

by Porch-a-Geese / November 1, 2009 2:30 PM PST

The cake consisted of six egg whites, 1 cup powdered sugar, 3/4 cup flour 1/2 teaspoon salt, 1 teaspoon of vanilla.
I baked it and split it across the middle.
The frosting was 2cups powdered sugar, 1 cup coconut tablespoon vanilla and water.
I made a custard with the egg yolks using 1/2 cup powdered sugar 11/4 cup tapioca starch, 1 cup coconut, 6 egg yolks.
I baked the custard.
One cake layer, custard layer, cake layer, frosting.

Previously, I made coconut&almond macaroons with a coffee/chocolate glaze and placed an almond on top. Yeah, like an almond joy but different.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
