  6. Bake in the preheated oven for 25-30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
  7. Allow the cakes to cool in the pans for 10 minutes, then transfer them to a wire rack to cool completely.

5. Assemble the Cake:

  2. Spread the filling evenly over the first layer.
  3. Place the second cake layer on top of the filling.
  4. Frost the entire cake with the whipped cream frosting.
  5. Optional: Garnish the top with additional coconut flakes and chopped nuts.
