i know this may be a winter desert, but it looks gorgeous, so i'm making it for my mom's birthday on wednesday. just wondering if the one serving of the cream cheese frosting was enough for the cake or if you had to double the recipe. also, it says you split the batter, but it doesn't look like you stacked the cakes. i'm thinking i'll split the batter, stack the cakes and frost in the middle; is the cake to heavy (rich) for that?
I've made this many times, and usually divide the batter, but when I baked for the photo shoot I was feeling too lazy to do a layer cake, so I baked it all up in a big springform pan. (Not recommended, by the way.) It bakes up fabulously when divided between two pans, though. If doing a layer cake, I would definitely double the frosting recipe to ensure you have enough. It should be a lovely light layer cake, not too heavy or rich at all. Happy baking!
This cake recipe was in the old (30+years ago) Better Homes and Garden cookbook as a sheet cake with a broiled coconut topping and was one of our family favorite - so light and delicate. I can't wait to try this version, the cream cheese frosting looks fabulous!
Will work for food... I mean comments
