Stir in ground almonds and 1/2 cup coconut. Divide batter between prepared pans. Bake for 30 minutes, or until toothpick inserted into center of cakes comes out clean. Cool cakes in pans on cooling rack for 15 minutes. Invert cakes onto cooling rack; remove pans. Cool cakes completely. Place 1 cake layer on serving platter. Combine 1/2 cup frosting with 1 tablespoon lemon extract and spread over cake layer on platter. Top with second cake layer. Frost top and sides of cake with remaining frosting.
