I think coconut is either something you love or you hate. My younger brother is strangely addicted, so when he came to visit I had to bake him the over-the-top coconut creation he deserved. The result was this eight layer vanilla and chocolate layer cake, with coconut frosting. I kept the frosting flavor fairly subtle, to appease the coconut haters, especially since I knew my bother couldn’t eat all eight layers on his own.
