My whole family loved the cake. It was so good - irresistible! I made it as a single layer cake. I topped it with an icing made by mixing together :
2 cups powdered sugar (confectioners sugar)
2 tbsp softened/melted butter
1 tsp vanilla essence
2 tbsp whole milk ( or as needed to get a spreadable consistency)
I used freshly ground nutmeg and cardamom and I am sure that made a difference. I also lightly powdered the coconut flakes in the food processor, since I did not see the flakes in the cake.
