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.

Love this cake!! I made this for Mother's Day and it was delicious! The only changes I made were to use a butter flavor cake mix and I baked it in a 13x9 inch pan. It's so moist and flavorful and not overly sweet. I think this definitely needs to be made ahead of time, because the frosting needs time to blend together so that it doesn't taste sour creamy. I toasted a little extra coconut on the stove in a frying pan for a few minutes to give it a little extra color and it looks beautiful!! Thanks for an easy and delicious recipe!!

Awesome cake, awesome frosting. I wasn't able to find cream of coconut so I used a bit of sweetened condensed milk instead. Thanks for the great recipe! I made it for my best friends birthday and she loved it.

Delicious and not too sweet at all. Everyone loved it. Made it for husband's birthday cake and he had 2 pieces. I did make it a couple of days in advance to "age". Thanks for an EASY and delicious coconut cake recipe!

Wow is right!! This cake is excellent - looks beautiful, tastes wonderful, and is simple to make. Mine crumbled a bit when cut but it may have been the skewers I poked it with. Next time (and there will be a next time) I will try poking it with toothpicks.

Excellent cake! I was afraid it was going to be a "wet" cake but it wasn't and we were thrilled. Thanks!

In twenty years of marriage I have never before heard my husband say "Wow!" on his first bite of cake, but for *this* cake he did. Now that the steps have been "fleshed out" a bit, this recipe is a tasty winner! Makes a super presentation. Thanks Cooking202.
