Cream Cheese Frosting II
This is the best Cream Cheese Frosting I have found yet! Although I have given it a 5 star rating, there is one thing that I change. I really love a bold cream cheese flavor, so I usually start with only 1 cup of sugar instead of 2. I then add more to taste, but I never put a full 2 cups in the frosting. Usually for a full cake, I double the recipe as well. I also love how easy it is to make!!!!

Fresh Coconut Layer Cake
My husband loves coconut cake, so I made this cake for our first anniversary. This was a bit challenging for me personally, as I do not like coconut!!! Even so, he really loved this cake!!! The cake itself was a little more dense than I had originally hoped and not quite as moist as I would have liked, but the flavor of it seemed to be great (according to the husband)! The filling is absolutely out of this world!! Before I flavored it with the coconut, I could have eaten the entire batch straight out of the pot!! I made no changes to it! For the icing, it calls for a crazy amount of sugar, so I actually used 16 ounces of cream cheese, 3/4 cup of butter, and approximately 2 cups of sugar (sweeten to taste). This is similar to the cream cheese icing that I use for almost all of my cakes! This change does lend a bold cream cheese flavor, and is nowhere near as sweet. You'll notice it also doubles the amount of icing so you will have some left over! I got rave reviews over this cake, even though I was unable to personally decide whether it was good or not, since I do not like coconut. I will make this again! Also, I do recommend microwaving each slice for 10-20 seconds before eating it. Storing it in the fridge solidifies the filling and cake a bit, so zapping it makes it perfect!!!
