Special Occasion Coconut Cake - S

I wanted a coconut cake last year for Easter. It was my first holiday on THM and I knew I would NEED a good THM dessert to keep me from diving for the other Easter goodies we were having. It worked! I'll be making it again this year.

Special Occasion Coconut Cake - S

1 recipe of the Special Occasion Chocolate Cake
recipe from the Trim Healthy Mama Book
(page 384)
omit the cocoa powder
1-2 tsp of Coconut Extract, optional

Mix and Bake cake as directed (remember to omit the cocoa powder!)
I baked mine in two 8'' round cake pans.

1 recipe of Icing for Cake Serene's Superfood Option
(page 385)
omit the cocoa powder
Instead of using stevia extract powder, I would use xylitol or erythritol for 
the sweetener, because you're going to need a little more powder verses 
liquid ingredients to achieve a better icing consistency.
(or you could try powdering a little unsweetened coconut to equal 1/2 cup
I think this would work great.)

Spread a little icing between layers before Icing cake.

1 cup of Unsweetened Coconut
(more or less)
Sweeten with stevia and toast on stove top or in oven.
Press onto side and top of Iced cake.
