Now that's a mouthful!
"Baked Occasions" dedicated this cake to Dolly Parton, whose birthday is January 19th.We'll leave out her age- you can Google that on your own if you so choose. Apparently she loves coconut and pink is her favorite color. Now I'm not a wild fan of Dolly's either one way or the other, but this cake certainly fits the bill for anyone who likes coconut, chocolate and pink.
A few steps involved but nothing terrible complicated. While baking, the smell of coconut permeated the house and this is a good thing! The chocolate coconut (cream cheese, I might add) filling is a dream (being one of my favorite combinations) and stayed creamy in the middle of the cake.
The glaze is quite sweet- you could leave it off, but then it wouldn't be a Dolly Doughnut! This cake was worth any bit of effort involved. A nice alternative to a traditional birthday cake.
