I’ll be honest my layers are very uneven, but I was going for delicious here not perfection!

I put this cake to the true test, I made it for my Mom’s card club! We are talking women who together have years and years of excellent cooking and baking skills backing them – to say I was nervous was an understatement.

It passed with flying colors, so I am confident in saying this is an excellent, delicious cake!

So for the cake part you can feel free to use a boxed white cake mix – I do most of the time! Because lets be honest the show stopper here is the amazing flavor of the icing and what’s between the layers soaking into the cake.

But I also love to use my Everyday Wedding Cake recipe because it’s just as easy as a box mix.

      You may be right but growing up an “icebox” cake was one that we kept in the refrigerator to keep fresh and eat on as long as it would last! Feel free to call it just Coconut Cake-different meanings for different people – ENJOY!
