Can anyone recommend a really good coconut cake to use for practicing tiered cakes?
Are you wanting just coconut flavor or actual coconut in the cake?
Have you checked out the recipe section here? There are lots of good ones I am sure...I have not made it through them all yet.
i always check allrecipes.com for new recipes i'm looking for as they have user reviews which are very helpful. i personally hate cococut so i don't have a recipe to share!
Yeah, there are some fantastic recipe sites out there as well as here.
I adore my fresh coconut cake, but don't really like the coconut flavoring ones.
If you are using a mix, you can get coconut in DH, or if you are using a scratch recipe, just sub cream of coconut for the water in your recipe. I use a doctored white mix and use the cream of coconut in place of the water. I tried the DH, but it wasn't coconutty enough for me. HTH
My daughter's favorite cake is coconut cake. To make an easy version especially for practice take a DH french vanilla mix, use coconut MILK (not coconut cream) in place of the water and stir in a cup of unsweetened coconut after mixing.
I torte this cake, use lime curd and lemon curd as a filling and frost with BC.
*you can usually find coconut milk in the food section with the Asian foods at most grocery stores.
