Nutmeg Feathercake

My grandmother, Mere, always made this. I recently found the same recipe in a 1940's Better Homes & Garden cookbook. It is such a different tasting cake thanks to the nutmeg. I sometimes use carmel frosting for those who are not coconut fans. But the included frosting is the cakes crowning glory.
