When I saw that the primary ingredient for the icing in this recipe was sour cream, I knew it was just a matter of time before I had to try it out! I love any alternative to the thick, overly sweet butter cream (or worse, fondant :P) style icing you often come across-- yick.
Anyway, this recipe does not disappoint! The trick though is, don't use store bought, dried out coconut-- freshly grated is the only way to go! I'm the last person to choose to make my own life harder (with fresh) when there's an easier alternative (dried, store bought) but the difference is enormous! It's the huge quantity of coconut oil in the freshly grated stuff that's released overnight (or longer) into the sour cream that gives it that incredible flavour-- the dried stuff just doesn't have nearly enough of it! Trust me on this, you'll never go back. :)
