Decorates the same as any other cake--really great with cream cheese filling!!! My recipe has coconut, pecans and maraschino cherries in it--it's my daughter's favorite kind of cake!!! YUM!

almond flavoring

I make italian cream cakes for alot of weddings and a few birthdays. I usually frost w/butter cream icing or add some cream cheese to it for a cream cheese buttercream icing. I always use cream cheese for the filling. It makes it easier to decorate if you use straight icing without adding coconut. Makes it better to put designs/decorations.

This is Chocolate Italian Cream Cake... I had such a hard time carving this cake because of the nuts and coconut in it. But taste wise, it is very good. I substituted butter/shortening with oil to make it more moist, and it worked.. This was my entry to the CA State Fair last month and I got First Place for it.. it was judged on taste, not so much with looks..also toast your coconuts.. it enhances the flavor.
