I will be making a yellow cake with coconut frosting.. I asked my client what flavor they want for frosting and they said whatever goes well with yellow cake and coconut frosting. I was wondering if you guys can help me by giving me ideas? I am not a fan of coconut so I wouldn't know what goes well with it. Also, I will be covering it in fondant.

Thanks icon_biggrin.gif

Wouldn't the frosting be coconut flavored?

Do you mean coconut frosting or filling?

I would do an almond flavor personally because i love almon and coconut but you could go with a plain vanilla so it doesn't compete with the coconut.

Yeah I'm kind of confused because you said you're doing coconut frosting so why would you need help deciding on a frosting? Do you mean filling? You could do a citrus or chocolate filling... I think citrus and chocolate go really well with coconut...

If you mean filling, custard is awesome with coconut. It's like coconut cream pie taste.
