  • Beat cream cheese, butter and vanilla in large bowl with electric mixer on medium speed until well blended. Add powdered sugar gradually, beating until well blended after each addition.
  • Cut cake horizontally in half. Spread bottom layer with half of the cream cheese mixture. Cover with top of cake; spread with remaining frosting. Sprinkle with coconut.

Size Wise

Sweets can add enjoyment to a balanced diet, but keep an eye on portion size.

Make it Easy

While the cake bakes, prepare the frosting, then refrigerate until ready to use.

Special Extra

Top the cake with toasted coconut! Spread BAKER'S ANGEL FLAKE Coconut evenly in shallow baking pan. Bake at 350°F 8 to 10 min. or until lightly toasted, stirring occasionally. Watch carefully as coconut can easily burn!

    I enjoyed the flavor of this recipe however, next time I will probably not cut the cake in half and just put the frosting on top with the coconut and almonds. The taste reminded me of an Almond Joy candy bar!! :p
