This Norwegian Coconut Cake is so delicious! It is more candy than cake and just melts in your mouth. It is also so easy and quick to make. I think this is the only quick and easy cake my mother used to make and it was almost always a part of her party tables.

This meringue and coconut cake is a variation of the Islandic Party Cake called Islandskake. (The only difference is that in the Islandic Cake there is an addition of vanilla custard as a layer on the cake before topping with the whipped cream and shredded chocolate. In the Islandic cake there is often an addition of prunes in the filling.
