Giant Coconut Macaroon Cake
A GIANT Version Of The Classic Coconut Cookie - in CAKE!
Ever since the French macaron became a huge CRAZE, it seems like these adorable little chocolate-dipped coconut treats have disappeared! But let’s get things straight - THOSE are called macarons, THESE are macaroons… and that one extra ‘o’ makes all the difference.
To settle the debate once and for all, I’m caking the GIANT version of BOTH sweet treats! To make this Giant Coconut Macaroon Cake, I baked some of my yummy Coconut Cake, filled & iced it in coconut-infused Italian Meringue buttercream and covered it all with some toasted coconut chips. I even made sure to drizzle it with chocolate - because really, that’s the best part!
Which one do YOU prefer?
