Coconut Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting

The cake has a homemade cream cheese frosty too that is covered in coconut flakes. 

Making for a beautiful winter inspired looking cake. Don’t you think?

It’s winter time here in Canada and here I was craving some Coconut cake.

The cake actually reminds me of snow and so I decided to add some snow to this photoshoot!

I think I got some stunning photos with this recipe. 

Making this cake an excellent dessert option for not only Summer but for the Holidays too!

It is not overwhelming sugary either, but there are hints of sweetness.

I much prefer to highlight the coconut flavors vs just sugar for this cake. 

So you defiantly will have a big bite full of those tasty flakes. 

This cake remind me of a snow storm on a plate!

The awesome part about this cake is that you won’t have to spend all day in the kitchen baking it.

Oh and do not forget to use cake flour for this recipe, it really makes all the difference in how it tastes. 

A cake made from scratch and that takes less than an hour to make. 

COUNT ME IN!

Now i’ll be honest, I’m not a cake decorator.

Meaning, I hardly ever create a cake that is shop worthy, looks wise.

However, I am a good baker and so you can expect this cake to be super moist on the inside and packed full of the most delicious coconut flavors you could ever want on the outside.

Soon after I finished the photoshoot this cake was enjoyed on the couch by me and my partner. It is one of my favorite cakes and I think it may be one of yours too.

Give it a try you may be surprised at how good it really is. 

The nice thing about this cake is that it can be served for at just about any holiday.
