About this recipe: This is a famous family recipe. Three irresistible layers of coconut cake, made incredibly moist thanks to the buttermilk. The delicious icing is a cross between buttercream and cream cheese icing. This cake makes a wonderful birthday cake, or a base for a unique wedding cake.
You can use margarine, or a mixture of butter and margarine, for a slightly lighter texture to this cake.
Lovely recipe, quick and easy to make. Has any one made this up to freeze?I'd like to use it at a later date but a bit wary of freezing. - 19 Jul 2011
