DIRECTIONS

  • Heat oven to 350 degrees. Coat three 8-inch round cake pans with nonstick cooking spray and dust with flour. Set aside.
  • In a medium bowl combine flour, salt and baking powder. Set aside.
  • With mixer on medium speed, beat butter and granulated sugar until light and fluffy in a large bowl. Mix in coconut milk, and extract. Add flour mixture a little at a time until incorporated. Batter will be VERY heavy. Set aside.
  • In a 3rd bowl, using clean dry beaters, beat egg whites on high speed until soft peaks form. Fold egg whites into batter with a spatula until no egg whites remain. The batter should now be the consistency of cake batter.
  • Pour into prepared pans and bake for 40 minute or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Cool in pans for 10 minutes then remove from pan and cool completely.
  • Frosting:
  • In a large bowl beat cream cheese and butter until smooth. Add confectioners' sugar and coconut extract and mix on low speed until smooth.
  • Assembly:
  • Place one layer on pedestal. Spread with 1/4 cup of desired filling. Top with 2nd layer and the remaining filling. Top with last layer. Secure with skewers. Spread frosting on side and top of cake.
  • Press a handful of coconut gently into side of cake. With remaining coconut, sprinkle on top of cake and chill. Garnish with raspberries etc.
