Absolutely delicious! I cut it down by 2/3 and made a single six inch cake. I didn't use coconut extract, just a bit more unsweetened coconut and the flavor was huge. It worked beautifully! I am going to be using this recipe to make a wedding cake, it's fantastic. Thank you!

I cannot believe this is ONLY the 4th review on this cake!!!<br/>I am not a "coconut" lover, the flavor is light in coconut. The cake is exquisite, thick, and one of the best I have had. Being that it is white, the frosting can be colored for a birthday. I have used it for my sons baptism, gave the recipe to a co worker for her sons confirmation. To identify it as "coconut" I had "tapped" the flakes over the frosting so you can see them. The frosting "makes the cake". Again: I'm not a big frosting person, (picky eater), the frosting is thick over the cake, and as explained above the cake is rich and moist. A nice scope of cake to frosting ratio is amazing. I make this for our potlucks at work and make sure i bring copies of this recipe. There is none left, I always grab a piece to take home before it is gone.<br/>Try it you will not be disappointed. I don't write reviews. but couldn't let this great cake only have 3!! People deserve to have some of this. You only live once!!!

Absolutely fabulous cake. I made this as one of my Christmas. Dinner deserts and their was 1 slice left. I got tons of compliments and even my finicky kids loved it. I did omit the coconut extract but I don't think it took away film the taste at all.
