This no-bake coconut cream lush dessert is ideal for everyone who likes coconut and quick, creamy treats. I usually prepare this cake when I want to celebrate some good moment – like the one today – I met a friend that I haven’t seen in many years! The moment was so precious, the day was well-spent…so I wanted to finish it with a nice dessert along with a glass of Prosecco after the dinner. Remember…it is the little things that make happy moments – not the grand events!
