Coconut Cake


Coconut Cake Coconut cake is a soft fluffy cake prepared by baking coconut milk and shredded coconut along with other ingredients. I used store bought coconut milk. This cake can be served as a tea cake also. Adapted this recipe from a Baking book written by Doris. For the first time, I have tried decorating cake using fondant. Fondant decoration was appealing to the eyes. Please check below for step by step instructions and pictures for preparing Coconut Cake.
