My family loves this cake. It reminds us a little of my grandmother's coconut layer cake AND our favorite Mexican Food Restaurant's Tres Leches Cake rolled into one. Definitely 5-star worthy.
Some of you had a hard time understanding why the recipe calls for a 9 x 13 when the picture is of a layer cake. Please check out the photos. Just click on the number of photos and you can flip through them and even match up photos with reviewers by their screen names.
To those who rated low only to slam the use of a mix or gripe about the fat content, please consider finding a recipe site that fits your stringent criteria...I do not presume to speak for anyone else but I love shortcuts and know how to limit my fat intake by exercising portion control or the ability to politely refuse a high calorie dish yet give my family the treats they love.
I would rather not have to wade through your misplaced, negative and insulting postings. Honestly, if you want to rate a recipe, follow it the first time, give your honest opinion, tweak it the second time if you like, and update with your tweaks so that your posts truly are helpful, not hurtful.
Seriously, didn't you learn in Kindergarten to treat others the way you want to be treated?
If you cannot respect our differences, go find a new site or better yet, write your own blog.....then it can be all about you and your recipes and likes and dislikes
Getting off of soap box now.
