Chelsee's: Coconut Heaven

A friend of mine was talking about the coconut cake at Chelsee's Coffee and More. I love coconut cake, but there is an art to it. The cake should be moist, dense and have a good flavor- similar to a pound cake. The frosting should not be too sweet because the coconut is the star of the show and should not be overpowered. You should be able to taste the time that went into carefully stacking and frosting each layer. And in that very first bite, you should taste the love. You can find this cake at Chelsees.
