I got this recipe from my Mom. Most of the time she baked a Coconut Cake this was the frosting that she put on it. She would make the frosting and ice the cake and then press shredded coconut all over.

This frosting is light-as-a-cloud and is much like the meringue you put on a pie. Try it over chocolate, white, yellow or angel food cake.

For an added garnish, sprinkle the top and sides of the frosted cake with coconut like my Mom did.

Enjoy!
