Coconut Big Top Kupkake with Cream Cheese Icing
Special request for the friend of my client... Looking to surprise a good friend for their birthday, one who is a coconut lover. Looking at the pictures, the client & birthday girl were pleased.
The recipe called for coconut extract, but I had the hardest time finding it. As any great baker would do, I substituted with other extracts to give it more than just a coconut flavor. Almond extract and vanilla extract are good pairings for a coconut cake topped with cream cheese icing. There is a chocolate filling in the middle too. Yum yum...
