How to Make Almond Chocolate Joy Cake


  1. Prepare your cake as recipe directs in two round cake pans and let completely cool.
  2. Choclate chips- melt in a small pan and set aside to cool.
  3. Powder sugar, butter, almond extract, coconut milk- place powder suger in a mixing bowl add soften butter and mix with beaters on med speed. Then add almond extract and coconut milk and mix well. Add your cooled melted chocolate and mix well.

    ( if frosting is to thick add 1 T of milk at a time until just right or if frosting is to thin add 2 T of powder sugar at a time until just right )
  4. When cake is completely cool, frost with chocolate icing. Add about half of the shredded coconut to the first layer after you frost it. Then place the other cake on top and frost it as well and add remainder of the shredded coconut and add a few almonds to the top of the cake.

    If you like you can chop the almonds add them to the first and or the second layer cake after frosting.
