How to make Mounds Cake
You’re going to be making a layer cake for this recipe. Don’t be intimidated by the layers, all it takes is a little practice and it will be great. I did decide to go with a homemade cake for this, but feel free to pick up a Devil’s Food Cake cake mix if you want!
How to make the cake: You are going to need three 9-inch cake pans. Mix up your batter, and pour an even amount into all of the pans. If you only have two 9-inch cake pans, it’s ok! Just pour a little extra into one of the pans and split it later on. Bake and let cool for about 5 minutes, then remove to a wire rack.
How to make the Mounds filling: While your cakes are baking and cooling, go ahead and mix up your filling. In a large bowl, combine the coconut and sweetened condensed milk. Pop it in the fridge until you’re ready for it.
Prepare your frosting: In the bowl of your mixer, beat butter, cream of coconut, and heavy cream on medium speed until smooth. With the mixer set on low, slowly add powdered sugar. Go slow so powdered sugar doesn’t end up all over your kitchen! Once the powdered sugar is just barely mixed in, increase speed to high and beat for one minute until fluffy. OMG, this frosting is delicious!
