Coconut Ice Yoghurt Cake

Last week I suggested to my youngest that I will make the kids a cake for an after school treat, her request was coconut and pink icing.  Yum, I am going through a coconut phase at the moment, love anything coconutty!! The kids absolutely loved this cake, the cake itself was really nice and light with a delicious yoghurt tang and the icing reminded me finger buns…. noms!
