Cold Coconut Cake 8

We  used to eat this cake every year in my nephew’s birthday party, but then he got older and his parties changed to pizza with friends and that meant no cold coconut cakes anymore :(

For years I’ve been meaning to make this cake and now I have finally made it.

You can keep the cakes in the fridge for a few days but you can also freeze them and defrost for 5 to 10 minutes before eating.
