I styled the party for my friend Gillian- the upcoming Bride!
A few guests were keen to try my Nannie's Coconut Ice recipe, so here it is!
(makes 54 pieces)
Cooking time 5 mins
750g icing sugar, sifted
1 cup condensed milk
255g desiccated coconut
65g shredded coconut
1 Tbs lemon juice
1 Tsp vanilla extract
4-5 drops pink colouring
1.5 Tsp rosewater
Lightly grease a 28cm x 18cm lamington tin with canola oil. Heat the copha in a small saucepan over med-low heat until just melted. Place the icing sugar, condensed milk and desiccated & shredded coconut in a bowl. Add the copha and stir until smooth. Add the lemon juice and vanilla extract and combine (you will have a stiff paste). Place a thrid of the mixture in a separate bowl and stir in the food colouring and rosewater. Coconut ice begins to set quickly, so work fast! Spoon half the white mixture into the prepared tin and use a palate knife or back of a large, flat spoon to press down until even. Evenly spread the pink mixture on top, then the remaining white mixture and allow to stand for about 1-2 hours or until set. Use a lightly oiled cutter to cut into desired shape.
And enjoy your delicious treats!
