3/4 cup sugar, divided
1 pt. whole cream
1 teaspoon coconut extract
1 commercial angel food cake (16 ounces), cubed
2 cans (15 ounces each) yams, drained or 2 cups fresh sweet potatoes, mashed (fresh makes a big difference in taste)

2 tablespoons flaked coconut, divided
1 container (8 ounces) frozen whipped topping, thawed
1 tablespoon flaked coconut, browned
1 tablespoon chopped pecans, toasted

In large bowl, beat together cream cheese and 1/2 cup sugar. Gradually add cream and coconut extract, mixing only until creamy. Fold cubed cake into cream cheese mixture; set aside.
