What could be more satisfying than coconut cake with a lemon filling? I personally thought the filling was a bit tart and would probably cut down the lemon juice/zest a bit next time as I felt the tartness was a bit overpowering. I loved the frosting. It was nice and fluffy--kind of marshmallow like, but not as sweet as a marshmallow. This recipe is one of Art Smith's from O Magazine.
