My, oh my! Is this cake ever delicious!!! And easy to make too! I followed the directions exactly; however, I made a sheet cake using a 9x13" pan because I was taking this on a road trip to Virginia for my sister's 50th birthday. I took the ingredients for the frosting along with me and made it when I arrived at my sister's. I was a bit worried that the 1/3 c rum would be too much but went ahead with the full amount. The (8 oz) container of Cool Whip worked well to reduce the strength of the rum. You could taste the rum but it was a subtle flavor, not at all over-powering. I topped half the cake with coconut and left the rest for those who don't care for coconut. (I know... hard to believe, huh?) The birthday girl LOVED it as did I and the rest of the crowd! Next time (and there will be a next time), I'll try subbing pineapple juice for the water in the cake recipe. I made this recipe for the Cake-A-Thon in memory of Chef-I-Am.
