I had to post this link to the best coconut cake I have ever had! Made the above cake for Chloe's birthday and there were nothing but rave reviews by all. Thanks to Kristina from In the Kitchen With at design*sponge, for her pointing me in the right direction of this recipe! Try it, you will be amazed! Double it for two 9 inch layers. I didn't go for the 7 minute frosting but added a vanilla frosting with the unsweetened coconut in between and sprinkled sweetened coconut on top. Seriously delish.
I had to add in this extra shot of the birthday girl exercising her mad sewing skills on her new machine ... she was into the cake for sure, but it was the machine which captured her attention!
