This is one of my favorite cakes of all time. There is a little cupcake shop in Portland that has the best coconut cream cheese cupcakes and I have finally been able to replicate the taste in gluten free cake form.For the frosting, just cream 8 oz of unsalted butter, then add 10 oz. cream cheese. Mix in 1 tsp. vanilla. Then, incorporate 1/2 cup of sifted confectioners sugar (add more sugar if you like sweeter frosting). Once the cakes have cooled, put a thin layer of frosting between the cakes. Then lightly frost the top and sides. Lastly, add a little bit of toasted coconut to the top.This is a great cake recipe but really everything is good with cream cheese frosting. Get the printable recipe here.
