This cake is made at Ivy Lea, a restaurant at a resort along the St. Lawrence River in Ontario Canada. I haven't made it yet, but it looks interesting. The coconut must be the white caps on the River. (I much prefer the River on a calmer day.) I present it for the adventurous at heart who want to try an untried recipe. Enjoy!
