I was really looking forward to making this cake for Valentine's Day, but unfortunately, it was very disappointing. The coconut filling in particular was a big, sticky mess! It was difficult to spread on the cake, and after sitting, it hardened so that it was very awkward to eat with a fork and not very pleasant to chew! I love the idea of dark chocolate and coconut together in a cake, but there has GOT to be a better filling than this! Also, I iced the cake as suggested by another reader by using the following: 1/2 cup evaporated milk, 1 cup sugar, 1t vanilla, 1 stick margarine, and 12 ounces semi-sweet chocolate chips. This was okay, but WAY too sugary--and this is from someone with the world's biggest sweet tooth! I would decrease the sugar or possibly even eliminate it altogether.
