"Coconut cake is soft, moist, and delicate with a chewy crumb while the cream cheese frosting adds tangy richness between each layer. This gorgeous coconut cake is soft, rich, and tender bursting with sweet coconut flavor. The fluffy cream cheese frosting and shredded coconut complete this cake for the perfect bite every time. The main ingredient in this tiered coconut cake truly shines between the coconut extract, cream of coconut, and coconut milk so you won’t be lacking in the flavor department. "
