I have never made coconut cake before this weekend.
It is fairly simple.
I used this recipe except instead of making it into a tiered cake, I just made a huge single layer cake.
This icing is awesome, just sayin.
The nice thing about this cake is that there is just a hint of the coconut flavor in it.
I've tried others that have been a bit overwhelming!
I used unsweetened coconut shavings and I think that made it perfect.
