1 Tbsp pure vanilla extract
2 Tbsp lemon juice
2 Tbsp orange juice
2 1/2 c confectioners' sugar
3 Tbsp coconut milk
1 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract


For cake:

preheat oven to 350'F

Grease a 9-10inch bunt pan. Set aside.
In a small sauce pan add coconut milk and butter. Heat the coconut milk slowly until butter is completely melted into the coconut milk. Take off heat and let cool. Set aside.
In a large mixing bowl sift flour, instant vanilla pudding powder, salt, and baking powder together. Set aside.
In another large mixing bowl, cream eggs and sugar together. Beat on high for 2 minutes until it starts to get a little fluffy.
Beat pure vanilla extract into egg mixture.
Add kumquat puree, lemon zest, orange zest, lemon juice, and orange juice to the egg mixture. Beat into egg mixture until it is completely incorporated.
Slowly beat coconut milk into egg mixture until completely incorporated.
Add flour mixture to egg mixture gradually in thirds, completely incorporating the flour mixture before adding more. Mix until just incorporated, don't over mix.
Fold in shredded coconut.
Pour out batter into bunt pan and bake on center wrack for 35-45 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out just barely clean. (You want a few crumbs to collect to the toothpick for it to be at a perfect amount of doneness.)

Cool on wire wrack for 1 hour before turning cake out onto a cake dish or platter.
