How to make this raspberry coconut layer cake?
We start by preparing the mounted ganache (a long resting time is necessary). Prepare the raspberry coulis, then the ganache with the white pastry chocolate and the whole liquid cream.
For the game Coconut cake, we proceed like a classic cake. We whip the butter, coconut oil and sugar, then add the eggs. Then the dry ingredients, finishing with the coconut milk.

My tips for making this layer cake a success
Respect the rest time for the whipped ganache, otherwise… It will not rise! One night is really important. Do not change the dose of white chocolate either, as it may be too runny.
The day you assemble the ganache, whip slowly to prevent it "slicing", that it makes lumps. No maximum speed. It should lightly double in volume.
For the coconut cake, put your ingredients well at room temperature. It is important for the texture. Coconut oil should not be melted, but at room temperature, very creamy.

I created this recipe as part of my collaboration with the KitchenAid brand. This pink cake is indeed a symbol: that of the fight against Breast Cancer. A cause celebrated every year on the occasion ofPink October.
The KitchenAid brand has supported the French association for 15 years. This year, she became a benefactor member by actively supporting the campaign organized by the association "Breast Cancer, Let's Talk About It!" ". KitchenAid contributes to the various Pink Ribbon Prizes, to support clinical research programs and the care and support projects offered to patients with breast cancer.
To ensure this support for the association Le Cancer du Sein, Parlons-en! KitchenAid has decided to put on sale for a good cause, from October 2017, a Artisan multifunction food processor pearly raspberry sorbet color. Part of the sales is donated to the association.
