This looks awesome! Zucchini Coconut Layer Cake – This has now become my new favorite cake!

INGREDIENTS

1 package (18.25 oz) French vanilla cake mix (couldn’t find French vanilla here so I used just a yellow mix)
3 eggs

1 cup water

1/3 cup oil
2 medium zucchini, 14 oz., grated, 2 cups
1/2 tsp coconut extract (my addition)
Frosting

1 1/2 cups (3 sticks) unsalted butter, at room temperature
1 container (16 oz) Marshmallow Fluff
2 1/2 cups confectioners’s sugar
2 tsp coconut extract
1 tsp vanilla extract (preferably clear)
2 cups sweetened, flaked coconut

METHOD
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.  Coat 2 (8″) round cake pans with cooking spray.  On medium speed, beat together cake mix, eggs, 1 cup water and oil (and extract, if using).  Stir in zucchini.  Evenly divide between pans.  Bake 28-30 minutes or until toothpick inserted into center comes out clean.  Cool on rack 20 minutes.  Transfer from pans to racks; cool completely, 30 minutes.

Meanwhile on medium speed, beat butter until light and fluffy, about 2 minutes.  Add Fluff; beat until combined.  On low, gradually beat in sugar, then coconut and vanilla extracts.

Place one cake layer on serving plate; spread with 1 cup frosting.  Top with remaining layer.  Spread cake top and side with remaining frosting.  Press coconut  onto side of cake.  If not serving immediately, refrigerate until 30 minutes before serving.
