Just wondering what would go good with this kind of cake. I would prefer to fill and ice with the same mixture. Any suggestions?

I'm not opposed to coconut filling/icing but don't have a tried and true recipe.

I use IMBC flavored with Malibu coconut rum- For the filling I stir in flaked coconut... makes my mouth water to think of it!

Pineapple is always a big hit.

Can I ask you what coconut cake recipe are you using FlourPots? Or are you making your own, like extending a box cake mix or something?

I use a passion fruit filling with my coconut cream cake. Best seller with my brides.

Yum, pineapple...not sure what passion fruit is, but I'm nervous about fruit fillings, dams and all that anyway.

The recipe I'm using came from cakeboss.com, and it does start out with a boxed mix. I've never tried it before so I can't vouch for the taste.

Didn't mean to scare you, its not actually "fruit" its a (frozen)concentrate thats wonderful! I simply thaw a few Tbls., mix it into sweetened Whipped cream (or sometimes IMBC) and thats the filling! icon_wink.gif I also get strawberry, blackberry, and several other flavors.....

I've never seen the thick rum glaze before! If it's thick enough to spread you could use it as a filling... if it's thicker but syrupy you could brush it onto the layers. I'm sure you could still use it to flavor buttercream. I'll have to look for some!
