I need to make a coconut cake tonight for a friends birthday. Does any one have an easy and good tasting icing recipe? Any help is greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance

I use a Swiss Meringue Buttercream recipe (there are several in the recipes section), becaseu its lighter and not as sweet.

I add a couple of tbsp of coconut milk to make the icing itsself more coconutty (is that even a word??).

I toast coconut, and fold it into the icing. If you arent going to cover the cake with fondant, then you can just sprinkle the toasted coconut on top, it looks prettier that way.
