LOVED this! I'm a bit biased, because I haven't found a Bundt cake yet that I didn't at least kinda like, lol, but this one was really yummy! The cake was very moist and tender, and while the frosting seemed like it might be too sweet by itself, it complemented the cake perfectly. When the cake was cooling in the pan, I tasted a bit of the craggy stuff from the soon-to-be bottom of the cake, and I think I would've enjoyed it even if I omitted the frosting (not that I did, just sayin...). My only complaint was that the frosting looked kind of shaggy and messy once applied to the cake. I think it might have turned out prettier if the coconut was simply sprinkled on after the frosting was applied, rather than mixed in. I did find that coconut was not a very dominant flavor in this, so you might want to add some coconut extract to either the cake or frosting if you're looking for a very coconutty cake. I garnished this with fresh raspberries primarily for color, but found that the tart little berries were also delicious with the sweet cake. I will definitely be making this again, thanks for posting! Made for PAC Fall 2011

This cake was delicious. The glaze added an extra moisture and coconut flavor. We added a bit more Malibu to the glaze than was called for which was great. We also garnished the top with strawberries. Very rich! Great recipe. :)
