Coconut Cream Cake

 Although dessert is something I indulge in rarely - when I do indulge, I want the most luscious and creamy confection possible.
Which  is why I'm so excited to share my recipe for Coconut Cream Cake.


 White cake is drenched in the flavours of coconut and cream cheese and then enveloped in a cloud of the most luscious frosting imaginable. Topped with toasted almonds and coconut, this dessert is a sure fire crowd pleaser and no one will believe how easy it is to make.
