Coconut Layer Cake


This months Cake slice bakers baked Coconut Cake! I've been waiting years to try a recipe, and was ecstatic when this cake won the vote! 
I decided to wait for Easter to make the cake. It was pretty simple to put together. The frosting was a new technique for me, and absolutely loved it. It's results are absolutely the creamiest! It's light and not sweet like your traditional American buttercream. 
I enjoyed every crumb of this cake. It brought back memories of that square coconut cake my mom use to buy at the supermarket. If I'm not mistaken I think hostess used to make it. It was a square cake frosted, and covered in flaked coconut. No one I know seems to remember this cake, I swear I'm not making it up! 



Any how, I loved this months cake, and hope nobody else does so I can take the rest home!

Now you made me wish I tried out the frosting.....
