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!

This looks so delicious!! I love Ice Cream cakes and coconut too because it’s such a light nice flavor especially in the summer!

Considering there’s raw egg in the icing, how long do you think this cake would keep? Or would it need refrigerating?

This was yummy but took over an hour to cook at 160 (fan-forced). I would do it at 180 next time, and then it would probably be the 40-45mins. I used berry yoghurt too, was delicious!
