I have made this cake several times. I omit the coconut flavoring because I think it makes the cake taste metallic. Instead, I use coconut milk instead of heavy cream and I use 1/2 cup of coconut flour. The simple syrup on the layers really makes this cake taste amazing as it keeps the layers moist. I think this is a delicious cake. When I had my cake store, it was a best seller. I even shipped it across the country a couple of times.

It was Simple Syrup to keep the layers moist. MAde by heating equal amounts of sugar and water just until sugar dissolves.

This is not as was shown on the show. What is the liquid that was poured onto each layer before spreading with the frosting??
