I would think no...coconut oil melts on contact when you touch it.  Do you mean for making fondant or for rolling it out?

I would like to know this also.  One of the cakes I am making is coconut and to have added coconut flavor would be just an added plus.

 

Me?  I will try a piece and see how it looks and sets up.
