I make coconut cake all the time. I always just use my favorite, Buttercream Dream, from here on CC.

I'd say coconut. icon_smile.gif I also like pineapple with coconut, or even chocolate, think Mounds bars.

Another thought would be like what you put on an Italian Cream Cake, the cream cheese icing with pecans and coconut.

I only ever use one frosting for coconut and that is Italian Meringue (NOT IMBC !) aka 7-minute frosting.

I make regular buttercream icing with coconut cream and pineapple juice instead of milk for the liquid. It's delicious.

I use a coconut cream icing I found here on cc. I love it. It's pretty much a coconut flavored buttercream. http://cakecentral.com/recipes/2221/coconut-cream-frosting
