I made this for my mother's birthday this year. It was a hit. I would love to try this with hazelnuts or macadamia nuts next!

How To Make coconut white chocolate cake wine-soaked berries

  • 1
    To start cake, melt brown sugar, butter, and white chocolate in a double broiler. Set aside.
  • 2
    In a mixing bowl, add flour, baking powder, heavy cream, eggs, and the extracts. Beat well for 3 minutes.
  • 3
    Then mix in chocolate. Beat well. Fold in coconut.
  • 4
    In two greased pans, pour in batter. Bake at 325F until a toothpick comes out clean. Wait until cake is totally cooled before frosting.
  • 5
    To start frosting, mix all frosting ingredients in a mixing bowl, save sugar. Beat well. Then add sugar little by little, while continuing to beat. Beat until both stiff and creamy. Overbeating will make grainy.
  • 6
    To start fruit, pour all ingredients in a saucepan. Cook on low medium until sugar is totally melted and most of the liquid is absorbed. Stir frequently.
  • 7
    To put together cake, frost first layer, then top with second layer. Frost sides, but not where fruit will go. Make a lip around the top with the frosting.
  • 8
    I made this for my mother's birthday this year, so I added sprinkles and chocolate chips, but that isn't necessary. I optionally would have coated the sides with either chopped macadamia nuts or hazelnuts if it weren't for a birthday cake.

    Finally, spoon on fruit. Enjoy!
