    Cooking202's Note:

    This cake is sooooooo moist and delicious. It can be eaten right away, but is so much better if left in the frig for a day or so. My times are approx.

      Hello Cooking202; As they say, "this cake is to die for". The best coconut cake that I have ever had. Tried many different coconut cakes in Hawaii and they were also good, but do not compare with yours. For those who enjoy a good coconut cake, don't wait any longer, make it now, you will not be disappointed. Thank you for sharing this recipe, it is number one on my list. "Uncle Bill"

      Delicious! I also let it sit for a day prior to serving, was also surprised how it is not too sweet. Thanks!

      Mmmm... this may be one of the best cakes I've ever had. I love the rich, dense, moist texture of the cake. It is intensely coconutty, and the slight tang of the sour cream in the frosting is the perfect complement. Fantastic.
