Caramelised coconut icing

    This is a very unique cake icing recipe. The icing is spread on top of the cake, and then grilled for 3 to 5 minutes till caramelised and bubbly. The result is a lovely, rich caramel flavour.

    I personally thought this was a great recipe... with way to much coconut! Only people with a huge sweet tooth would like the amount of coconut listed in the recipe. I would recommend about a 1\4 cup instead of a 1\2. Besides that, this was a great recipe that I frosted a crazy cake (from all-recipes too) with!
