Cranberry Coconut Cake with Marshmallow Cream Frosting
Total TimePrep: 1 hour + chilling Bake: 35 min. + cooling
I made this cake for Christmas, and everyone raved about it. The combination of the coconut, lime and cranberry are amazing! The cake is very moist, and the cranberry curd has just the right balance of sweet and tart. The icing is a perfect complement to the cake. If you want to impress someone with a picture perfect cake, this is the one to make. I would note that this is not a cake that you can just "whip up" in a hurry. I made the cakes and cranberry curd the day before, and it took me about an hour to make the icing, toast the coconut and put it all together the following day. Thanks, Julie Merriman, for contributing this recipe to Taste of Home.
Can anything regarding this cake be made days in advance? Making this cake for Christmas but don't have the time to put it together on Christmas Day.
This makes a beautiful & impressive cake as well as being delicious! Definitely a "keeper" recipe says everyone who ate it!
A lot of work but absolutely worth it! Delicious!!
Beautiful and delicious! Wouldn't change a thing!
I made this cake for my coworkers. They actually scraped the crumbs off the plate!! The cranberry, lime, and coconut are "a party in your mouth". To the previous rating: of course you can cut the recipe in half if you can divide by 2. Very rude to rate a recipe one star if you never even tried to make it.
Could u cut the cake recipe in half?I haven't made it yet so gave one star to ask my question.
