Apricot Cream Cake

105 mins (prep 30, cooking 75)
12 ingredients
12 servings
Recipe taken from the Duncan Hines website. I was searching for a birthday cake to meet some dietary restrictions of the guests (no seeds, no citrus, no chocolate).Apricot preserves, generously spread between layers of cream cake, present a delightful alternative to berries. Garnish with coconut flakes to create a tropical contrast.
