Seeking Perfect Coconut Cake

Vel | Dec 12, 2008 08:59 PM

I am looking for recs for the best, most elegant, bakery (take-away) coconut cake in Seattle. I want a round layer-style cake, with white or yellow cake, very moist, with a not-too-sweet frosting and lots of yummy shaved coconut. Filling is ok, as long as it is custard and not fruit.

Does this fantasy cake exist? I found a place called 60th Street Desserts, which claims to have a "signature" coconut cake, but it's frosted with something called "Italian meringue". I don't know what that is, but I hate the eggy stuff that goes on meringue pies...

Any suggestions, particularly from downtown to north Seattle would be much appreciated.
