You can create the coconut lovers dream with this amazing Coconut Cake with Lemon Curd and vanilla buttercream. The smooth vanilla buttercream balances out the tart lemon curd creating a delicious dessert for a special occasion. Not only does the cake taste amazing but it looks beautiful, perfect for a holiday party!
- Make the cake, and while it is baking, make the lemon curd (which is pretty quick and easy). Wrap the cake in foil and pack the curd into a storage container, and refrigerate both.
- On the following day, make the buttercream, and then fill, ice and decorate the cake.
- Or refrigerate the buttercream for another day (or up to three days); let it come to room temperature before decorating the cake.
“Once decorated, cover the cake with a cake dome or an inverted mixing bowl, and it can sit on the counter for several hours until serving. You can also refrigerate the covered cake for a few days before serving (up to 3 days).”
