This has been a Christmas tradition in my family for generations. I remember my great aunt bringing in this tall 3 layer cake with yummy fresh coconut frosting.
- Bake cake and cool completely.
- Open coconut, remove outer hard shell, pare inner brown shell, rinse and grate.
- Mix sugar, sour cream and coconut.
- Fold in cool whip.
- Spread frosting between layers of cake and outsides of cake.
- Refrigerate overnight.
