Author Notes

The name of this cake literally represents the cake itself. We made a very American peach cake to go along with a very Brazilian filling and glaze. Both filling and glaze are sweet staples of a lot of Brazilian desserts: condensed milk and coconut. This cake is a great option for the warm weather because it has a mix of flavors and it needs to be served cold!! Enjoy it! —BrazilianFlairintheUSA

Um, so which sugars go in the cake part of the recipe and which go in the filling and glaze?
Your recipe is not clear.
