5. Whip the cream in a bowl until soft peaks form. Add the remaining 1/2 teaspoon vanilla, the remaining 1/2 teaspoon almond extract, and the confectioners’ sugar, and whip until the peaks are fairly stiff. By hand, gently fold the remaining coconut icing into the whipped cream. Spread this mixture over the top and sides of the assembled cake, and serve.

    Gimmie, gimmie, gimmie the cat, the dress, the boots, the flowers, the dinrk, the ice cream, then the cake, in that order. That cake is beautimous – it was my mom’s fave cake – I may try this for Alpha Son’s birthday this year – whoo hoo!!!

    p.s., of course, I’m on a diet so the cake and ice cream and chocolate drink are out, the dress wouldn’t fit right now, I’d trip with the heels of the boots, and Alpha Hubby doesn’t like cats inside… guess I can only have the flowers. *sigh*
