I liked it,I loved it,can't get enough of it. This cake was to die for! It's definately worth more than 10 stars! I couldn't find a butter cake mix so I used a butter pecan. I found this cake recipe because I was searching for a way to use up some leftover cream of coconut and boy was I ever glad I did. My whole family and friends love it and they're not big coconut fans. The frosting was soooo delicious with just the right amount of sweetness,I'll make my cream cheese frostings like this from now on. Thanks johnvac52.

This cake was soooooooo easy and DELICIOUS! I was leary of the frozen coconut. I usually don't care for it, but the combination of it and the creamy, light, not-too-sweet frosting was sheer heaven! This one is definitely going in my permanent cookbook!
