  1. looks like my kind of dessert, easy and sweet! can hardly wait to try it, but have to ask: what is cream of coconut?” thanks a bunch.

    1. Hi Shirley, cream of coconut is in a can in the International section of the supermarket. It is creamier / thicker than coconut milk. You may find it near the Asian products/ Hope this helps! and enjoy your cake!

  2. My favorite cake on Earth is lemon cake with coconut icing and my birthday is in a week and a half. Doesn’t seem likt it should be hard to change the cake flavor without impacting the basic properties of it. Yum. Will report back.
