This is a wonderful holiday cake, especially for those people who don't normally like baked fruitcake. It is more like a candy than a cake.

This did not firm up for me. I left it in the fridge for a week and it is mush. Tastes great though. It was expensive to make so I may add another bag of vanilla wafers and see if I can save it.
Omitting the coconut milk will solve the 'too soft to cut' issue and the fresh/frozen coconut provide ample coconut flavor. My Grandmother and aunts made this cake annually for Christmas, packing the cake in small narrow boxes lined with foil to reserve moistness. Slicing thinly is imperative as it is rich and makes the cake last longer if you can stay out of it, lol.
