As you know, The Cake Slice bakers have been baking our way through Sky High: Irresistible Triple-Layer Cakes by Alisa Huntsman and Peter Wynne. This month the group voted for Southern Coconut Cake.
I just adore coconut cakes but I find that not to many people like coconut. I believe this cake would convert any non-coconut believers. The cake had a tight tender crumb with a coconut essence. And the icing?
Cream cheese icing is a favorite for many. I have to tell you that this version will be my "go to" icing from now on. I will use it on coconut, carrot, banana, and hummingbird bird cakes. The icing has the cream cheese flavor we all love but adding "meringue" lightens the icing to an indescribable level.
Unfortunately, I am unable to show you the layers because I sold the cake! I don't think the buyer would have been happy if I cut out a slice. If you would like to see more triple layer coconut cakes then head on over to The Cake Slice. You won't be disappointed. Until next time ...Happy baking!
