Coconut Lover’s Celebration Cake 
with Marlene Sorosky-Gray

Marlene describes her Coconut Lover’s Celebration Cake as a recipe that has evolved through the years. Each time she makes it she finds a way of improving the taste or technique. For both the cake and custard filling to have pronounced coconut flavor, she’s added coconut milk and flaked coconut to them. 

The dessert is made in 4 parts: cake, rum syrup, coconut custard and whipped cream frosting. Marlene likes to think of each part as a separate recipe that can be made at different times and then assembled. Made that way fools her into thinking that it is not that much work and in truth, done like that, it isn’t.
