I made this for my mom's birthday, and with the following changes it turned out excellent! For the batter, I omitted nuts and chopped the coconut finely. Then I split the two 9 inch cakes into 4 layers and filled it with the pineapple topping recipe also from this site. For the frosting, It would have been way too sweet for my asian tastebuds, and so I used 1 8 oz package of cream cheese and only 3/4 cup sugar! YES, it might sound like too little but the cake itself is already extremely sweet. After frosting the cake, I toasted 2 cups of coconut and smothered the entire cake with it so it looked like one big toasted snowball. The flavor was out of this world. Thank you so much for this recipe!
