  7. Add the Matcha mix to the rest of your cake batter and beat until combined.
  8. Pour an even amount of batter into each of your cake tins and bake for 35-40 minutes or until golden.

  12. Build your cake stack, spreading icing and a sprinkle of coconut between each layer.
  13. Spread your remaining icing (you should have about half the mixture left) over the top and sides of your cake before sprinkling with coconut to finish.
  14. Serve and enjoy!
