Notes
As you can see from the picture, I made this into a layer cake by cutting the cooled 8 1/2 inch round cake in half and then frosted and stacked. This recipe is dairy-free and is frosted with a non-dairy alternative to cream cheese frosting. It is also lovely topped with whipped coconut cream.
