It’s the big daddy… what people line up for at the Dahlia Bakery… time to go for the gusto.
I lost some of the photos- so we’re bare bones here- but here is layer number one: Bake the coconut shell covered in whatever beans you have in your pantry…
The second layer of Coconut is the filling- oy! delicious! Thick, rich, fabulous… it cools first in the fridge and then is added to the crust. That is somewhere under all of this whipped cream…
My piping… not so great. I think I need a larger star-tip if I’m going to make it look more professional- but the taste was great- so who cares.
Final coconut layer is the top- flakes! (and some white chocolate shavings) I wasn’t very successful making gorgeous curls that I pictured. I think my chocolate block may have been too small- but again, it was delicious.
I got loads of compliments on this from the extended family… and they know their pies.
It was a lot easier than I thought it was going to be. Worth the effort- and most can be made a day in advance which is also nice.
