Coconut Cake

Thursday, March 24, 2016

Quentin Bacon

What is it about Easter and Coconut Cake?? They just go together! This is one of the most popular cakes I’ve ever made and for Easter, I love to decorate it with jelly beans. I make the cake a few days in advance, wrap it well and refrigerate it. Then on Easter morning, I’ll make the easy cream cheese frosting, assemble the cake, and cover it with a blizzard of sweetened shredded coconut. It’s a real show-stopper, and the only hard part is resisting cutting into the cake until it’s time for dessert!
