Chocolate-Almond Coconut Cake
This showstopper features a shiny chocolate glaze, crunchy almonds, and coconut both inside and out.
Why This Recipe Works
This cake reminds us of an Almond Joy candy bar with its coconut cake layers, crunchy almonds, and shiny chocolate glaze. We wanted to pack coconut inside and out, so we made a tender three-layer coconut cake, filled it with a fluffy coconut filling, and garnished it with toasted coconut shreds. For an eye-catching presentation, we coated the layer cake with a dark chocolate glaze, one of our favorite tricks for easy but professional-looking decorating.
