When I was making this cake, I had doubts throughout because, not only was it ugly before it was frosted (all the holes and liquid soaking in are not a very appetizing sight), but the color of the cake after it had soaked was almost questionable. However, the cake turned out to be quite a tasty surprise! I would suggest to others who make this recipe that they make the cake 2-4 days before it is eaten. The longer you allow it to sit, the better it tastes. I wasn't too crazy about it the first 2 days, but by the 4th day the cake was absolutely delicious. I frosted it with the cool whip frosting on this site as suggested by some other viewers and it was wonderful, though it did come off as slightly cheese flavored. Also, I toasted the coconut that I sprinkled over the frosting. One note, if you are using this frosting, I suggest you wait to frost the cake until the day it is going to be eaten or the night before because after it sits for awhile, it begins to taste slightly salty, which doesn't really complement the cake. Otherwise, this cake was delicious. A definite keeper!
