If you love the almond and coconut flavors of the famous Raffaello candy truffles, you’ll love this elegant coconut cake! I’ve previously made a Ferrero Rocher Cake that was a huge hit and now, I’m sharing a version of its cousin truffle – the white chocolate coconut Raffaello cake! This incredible cake is packed with loads of coconut flavor, white chocolate and the texture – very light, tender and melt-in-your-mouth delicious!

Raffaello Coconut Cake
This elegant cake is packed with so much incredible flavor! The tender and moist cake layers are made with almond flour and coconut cream, to add coconut flavor and a hint of almond into every bite. These delicate layers are then frosted with a fluffy coconut cream buttercream frosting. I add just the fatty solids of coconut cream directly into the buttercream for maximum flavor.
And for the filling, more coconut! I combined shredded coconut with sweetened condensed milk to create an unforgettable center filling. And for the finishing touches, actual Raffaello truffles to finish off this coconut Raffaello cake! I love everything about this sweet coconut creation and I know you will, too!
