Bake at 350° for 50 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted in center comes our clean.

Remove the coconut cream or milk from the fridge. Place hardened cream in your chilled mixing bowl and beat for 30 seconds with powdered sugar until creamy.

Spread coconut frosting over the cake once it has cooled. Decorate to your liking.
