    HI Gem!
    Can you sub dessicated or packaged coconut for frozen? Up here in the frozen north I have never seen frozen coconut. Hope all is well with y'all.

    I just read a book where the grandmother made a Three Day Coconut Cake every Christmas...and I just couldn't imagine why a cake would take 3 days!! Now I have the recipe! Thanks, Gem!!

    My Grandma always made the coconut cake too. Now I do.. We always had to use Fresh coconut and used the coconut milk to weep over the finished cake for about 3 days.. I would post it, but it's hard to put to paper what is in my head! There never was a written recipe for this.
