When Andrew made this cake for a party recently, it was a huge hit. And no wonder, this is a coconut lover’s dream, because it’s coconut on coconut covered with more coconut. The result is a decadent buttery cake filled with coconut pastry cream. But it doesn’t even stop there. Shredded coconut covers the coconut buttercream icing like a blizzard of sweetness. It’s a three layer cake made in a single nine inch pan. Is it hard to make? Well, to a non-baker like me, anything this elaborate looks difficult. But Andrew assures me it’s not. And I can promise you that the results are worth any degree of difficulty, it’s just that good.
