      Overall this was a good cake. The texture seemed a bit "spongy" to me and the frosting was way too rich for my tastes, but I did like the almondy flavor. I'm also not a huge coconut fan, but it was good this way. We started a new holiday tradition with this cake by decorating it as a "Happy Birthday Jesus" cake. Before we opened our presents, we lit the candles on this and sang Happy Birthday to Jesus to help the kids understand what Christmas is about. So even though I'll probably try out a new recipe next year, thanks for inspiring a new tradition.<br/><br/>Ohhh... yes and I forgot to note, as you will see in the picture I prepared this as a rectangular 2 layer cake and not a circular 4 layer.
