  1. looking for something to bake ‘your cake looks yummy’ and after watching this I may make a couple of changes. I like the idea of the frosting inside the layers with nuts and coconut but I think the outside of the cake should be without the extras.. you can always sprinkle nuts on top and have the icing neater.. ??? yes/no ? Lynn.. have a great day

  2. You’re very welcome, I’m planning to make this cake tonight for Christmas . I’ve been cooking since I was 13 and believe me separating the eggs is way easier in the hand lol . I’m looking for someone to show how to make an Italian lemon cream cake. I can follow any recipe but with youtube like watching too.

  3. use a little milk to thin out the frosting. also if too sweet just add less sugar for the next time. that’s the beauty of making your own frosting. you can sweeten to you taste.
