Notes

  • Cream of Coconut is often found in the alcoholic beverage aisle at the grocery store.  Coco Lopez is just one of the many brands that are available.
  • Use the leftover Cream of Coconut in this amazing Amaretto Pina Colada recipe.
  • This cream cheese frosting is perfect. Omit the coconut and use it on any of your favorite cake recipes.
  • Keep this cake refrigerated due to the cream cheese and milk in the icing.
  • Substitute canola oil for vegetable, if desired.
