This is a delicious cake, moist, and easy to make as well. I only had one cup flaked coconut and I didn't have any coconut extract (so I left that out) but it still had a nice coconut flavor, enough for me anyway. Ashley, I would suggest you edit this recipe . . . as you can see, steps 4 and 5 are duplicates and there is no mention of the additions of the sugar or coconut milk (except in the glaze). I figured it out, but others might have problems. After you do so, I'll come back and edit my review (removing this second paragraph). Thanks for the lovely recipe !

This was the first time I've made a coconut cake and I don't think I will ever look for another recipe. I made this for a party and people could not say enough good things about it. Almost everyone went back for seconds. Thank you for a wonderful recipe!

The texture of this cake is what makes it! So soft and moist. My icing turned out a little sticky but still amazing overall! Thank you
