Made this cake for Father's Day tomorrow
Coconut Cake with Raspberry Filling « Bake Me More
They have a photo of the cake that made me want to make this one.
Everything turned out perfectly. I made three layers and then just split one of them and put it together this way:
full cake layer, thin layer of buttercream topped with raspberry preserves and then a light sprinkling of coconut, split layer topped with buttercream, split layer topped with raspberry preserves and light sprinkling of coconut, full cake layer topped and frosted with butter cream and then sprinkling of coconut over top.
BTW, this is the buttercream frosting I learned to make when I lived in Utah. It is absolutely the best (and you must use real butter). It whips up light and isn't overly sweet tasting. It looks incredible. Can't wait to cut it tomorrow.
