    2. 2
      In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, cocoa, baking soda, baking powder and salt; set aside. In a second medium bowl, whisk together sour cream and coconut milk. In a large bowl, beat butter and sugar on medium speed until fluffy, about 2 to 3 minutes. Add eggs, one at time, beating well after each addition. Beat in almondand vanilla extracts. On medium-low speed, beat in flour mixture in three additions, alternating with coconut milk mixture, beginning and ending with the flour mixture.
    3. 3
      Pour batter evenly into prepared pans. Bake at 350 degrees for 25 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool in pans 10 minutes, then turn onto a wire rack and cool completely.
    4. 4
      Chocolate Ganache - Heat cream in a small pot on medium-high heat just until it simmers. Immediately pour over chocolate in a medium bowl; let stand 3 minutes. Add vanilla and mix until smooth. Cover and cool to room temperature.
    5. 5
      Filling - Meanwhile, in the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the whisk attachment, beat the butter and sugar on medium-low speed until blended, about 1 minute. Increase speed to medium-high and beat for another 3 minutes. Add vanilla and 3 tablespoons water and beat on medium-high speed for 30 seconds. Add coconut and almonds and beat for another 30 seconds. Set aside.
    6. 6
      To assemble: Place one cake on a stand (if slightly rounded, trim off a bit to make it flat). Spread 1/2 the filling on the cake. Repeat with second cake and remaining filling. Top with the third cake (do not trim). Ice cake evenly with chocolate ganache. Garnish with coconut and almonds.

      I made this for my mother's 85th birthday and everyone loved this fabulous cake! The recipe calls for quite a few ingredients and is costly to make but well worth it if you are making it for someone special and/or for a special occasion. It has very complex flavors and the chocolate, coconut and almond flavoring blend together to make a delicious and sumptious dessert. Can't rave about it enough. HIGHLY recommended!

      This cake was absolutely delicious. It does require time to make, but it is worth it.
      If you are a fan of Almond Joy candy bars, this is the cake for you.
