When I need an impressive dessert for a special occasion, this is the recipe I turn to. My guests are glad I do! This coconut cake іѕ ѕоооо gооd and moist уоu ѕhоuld mаkе twо…thаt way you саn be ѕurе tо gеt some. I tаkе іt to wоrk and it dіѕарреаrѕ rеаllу fast.

This is a very good cake. I put lemon curd between the layers and make a microwave Boiled Frosting instead of the standard 7 Minute Frosting. This is a very popular cake when I take it to potlucks or reunions..
