Hello! Can you believe Spring is finally here??? This post is part of the SPRING HOP I’m doing with 7 other bloggers. Throughout the week our group has shared some Spring ideas & recipes. Today, it’s my turn…
This is probably one of my most favorite cakes – ever! I crave it. I typically only make it twice a year, Christmas & Easter. It’s a recipe from a friend’s Me-maw, that’s Southern for Grandma & let me tell you – Me-maw knows a thing or two about a good cake!
The cake is from an actual cake mix box! But what sets this beauty apart is the yummy filling & of course the colored coconut. You can see my “how to instructions” of coloring coconut by clicking here. I thought PINK was perfect for Spring & Easter~!
Follow the directions on the back of a yellow cake mix box.
Split into 4 layers.
2 cup of sugar
16 oz of sour cream
12 oz of frozen coconut – thawed
Set aside about a half cup of coconut to color for the topping
8 oz whip cream for the topping
Mix all of it together & cool in fridge for about an hour. Once cooled take mixture & spread between cake layers. To color coconut follow the instructions here.
Once you have layered the filling in between the cake, cover & top with whip cream & sprinkle your coconut on top. Place a chocolate bunny on top of the cake. You may need some help from tooth picks to keep the chocolate bunny in place.
***You can make this cake up to 2 days ahead of any gathering or planned meal!***
The older the cake is – the better!
Although, it’s extremely hard to wait 2 days…to eat a cake you just made…
Just ask Mason.
Like I mentioned above, today’s post is part of a Spring series we’re doing to officially kick off Spring! And don’t forget on Friday we would love to see you back here & link up to the BIG Spring link party!
