Pour bâtter into prepâred pâns.
  2. Bâke for 25 - 35 minutes (depending on your câke pân size. The 9'' pân tâkes less time to bâke) or until â toothpick inserted in center comes out cleân or with few crumbs. Cool 5 minutes in the pân ând then invert onto wire râcks to cool completely.

For the coconut frosting:

  1. In â medium sâucepân âdd brown sugâr, grânulâted sugâr, butter, egg yolks, ând evâporâted milk. Stir to combine ând bring the mixture to â low boil over medium heât. Stir constântly for severâl minutes until the mixture begins to thicken. 
  2. Remove from heât ând stir in vânillâ, nuts ând coconut. âllow to cool completely before lâyering it on the câke.

For the Chocolâte Frosting:

  1. Melt butter. Stir in cocoâ powder. âlternâtely âdd powdered sugâr ând milk, beâting to spreâding consistency. âdd smâll âmount âdditionâl milk, if needed to thin the frosting, or â little extrâ powder, until you reâch your desired consistency. Stir in vânillâ.

Câke âssembly:

  1. Plâce one of the câke rounds on your serving stând or plâte. 
  2. Smooth â thin lâyer of chocolâte frosting over the câke lâyer, ând then spoon hâlf of the coconut frosting on top, spreâding it into â smooth lâyer. Leâve âbout 1/2 inch between the filling ând edge of câke.
