Coconut Cake with Pineapple Filling

I made this coconut cake and frosting for my daughters birthday at the end of June this year. I made a key lime, pineapple curd filling (using key lime juice and pineapple juice). It tasted amazing


The most AMAZING Coconut Cake, with layers of tender, moist coconut cake, fresh pineapple filling, and whipped coconut cream cheese frosting that all pair together perfectly.
