Coconut Birthday Cake

Coconut Birthday Cake
As our resident family baker, my sister loves to make cakes for all of our birthdays. This year, she asked for a new challenge so I requested a coconut cake. Not only was it beautiful, it was delicious! She found the recipe online but the pretty presentation was all her own.

Here's how she did it:
Bake the cake in a large (9") and small (4") baking pans. Ice the larger cake all over and press the sides with coconut. Then place the smaller cake on top, cover in icing and press sides with coconut. Pipe icing around the bottom of each layer. Add a small, full circle of piped icing in the center of the top layer and sprinkle coconut in the middle. To finish, add large dot sprinkles around each layer.

This made a beautiful birthday cake and I think it would make a cute cake for a baby shower or even for Easter.
