      EXCELLENT! This cake rises beautifully and retains both it's moisture and flavour (even 3 days later!!). The frosting (a boiled frosting like my Mama used to make & I never could!) is supurb!!! Easy to make (use a candy thermometer for a proper temp reading - it's essential! A heavy bottomed saucepan is your best choice here) and the flavour is magnificent!! My husband actually asked for a 2nd piece (he never asks for 2nds of anything!!!) As a variation, use maple flavouring and top a chocolate cake - WOW!! THANKS for this excellent recipe, one I'll be making again and again!!!

      The cake is super moist (I used full-fat coconut milk) and light. We used a coconut cream cheese frosting.

      Really good cake, the icing amount was perfect to have it high and fluffy. I didn't have any cream of tartar on hand so I substituted it with 1tsp of lemon juice and it turned out great.
