This was my nana's all-time favorite cake! Now I know why

Put this recipe on paper.
The decadent flavor and velvety texture of Italian Cream Cake make it a treat that is sure to please. Though it may have originated in the American South rather than Italy, the name may have been inspired by the usage of cream cheese, which was once thought of as an Italian component in some regions of the United States. Everybody loves this cake now, and it's not only for holidays, birthdays, and weddings. With a touch of sweetness from coconut flakes and a crunch from toasted nuts, it brings together the lightness of sponge cake with the richness of cream cheese icing. A delicious and soothing treat, this cake is the product of blending several culinary traditions.
The flavors of Italian cream cake are best served unadorned so that they can really pop. Little is needed to complement the cake because it is a showstopper in and of itself. For the coffee connoisseurs among us, a robust espresso or cappuccino would be the perfect accompaniment to this decadent cake, and a coating of powdered sugar would be the finishing touch to make it truly special. To counteract the sugar, try topping it with some fresh berries for a tart contrast or some creamy vanilla gelato for a decadent treat.
