When I make coconut layer cake, I fold coconut into the buttercream frosting and then stick shredded, unsweetened coconut to the outside of the cake (via the frosting. When I make coconut pound cake, all the coconut is inside the cake.

I like this tutorial for covering a cake with sprinkles: http://thecakeblog.com/2012/09/diy-rainbow-sprinkle-cake.html Perhaps you could try the same thing with the coconut flakes.

Large coconut flakes that you are most likely to find where organic products are sold. Or you can try sliced almonds instead
