12-Layer Coconut Cake

Banana-Coconut Cake

This double-layer cake is shockingly delicious. The cake itself is so moist it melts in your mouth, and between the two layers of scrumptious cake lies a sweet coconut frosting and fresh banana slices. The entire masterpiece, once frosted, is topped with toasted coconut and chopped pecans. Another one of our mother-daughter creative collaborations, this banana-coconut cake is absolutely divine. — Marea Goldman
