The coconut sprinkled on this old-fashioned fluffy white cake gives the impression of snow inside the house without the cold. It's a beautiful dessert that is a fitting end to a delicious winter meal.

I make this fudge at Christmastime to give to friends and neighbors. That tradition started years ago when I made more candy than my husband, three sons and I could eat, so we shared it. It's a tasty tradition I'm glad to continue.

This cake gets better the longer it sits, so I try to make it a day ahead. My mother-in-law introduced this deliciously rich cake to me. With its creamy frosting and light almond flavor, no one can stop at just one piece!
