No fuss Coconut Cake with Coconut Buttercream Icin

Sheila Illes


We love this coconut cake chilled from the fridge. It is refreshing for a light dessert and so easy to make ahead of time or even at the last minute. Cake can be cooled quickly in the freezer before icing to speed up your prep time and make it easier to spread icing. I hope you enjoy this as much as we do.
