    This cake was served at a bridal shower that I attended a couple of years ago. I begged for (and received) this recipe afterwards.

      Delicious! I made half a recipe of cake, and a whole recipe of frosting. I found the frosting to be a little thin, and will add more sugar next time. I also sprinkled coconut on top so nobody would be surprised by it inside :-)

      Holy moly! I made this cake for my mother's birthday and we all agreed that this had to be the BEST cake we have ever tasted in our entire life! I just cannot even explain how amazing this cake is. I really wish I could give this more than 5 stars! I love it so much I want it for my wedding cake!!!! I also just sprinkled a little coconut on top just for a finishing touch! Worked out well! Thank you for this amazing recipe...or should I not thank you for the weight gain from this cake! :)
