This beautiful Frozen Piña Colada Cake by Emily Spain is reminiscent of sipping a chilly piña colada in a tropical paradise. The creamy coconut milk filling is flavored with sweet, yet tart pineapple and can be served one of two ways. You can serve it thawed so that it’s like a cream cake or serve it frozen for a cake that’s like ice cream. You won’t believe this has an entire zucchini in it. It’s totally undetectable, only adding to the creaminess, so the cake is totally delicious.
