After not wanting to do just another boxed cake for a special family guest, I picked this up out of my recipe box to try it. The reason I didn't give this cake 5 stars is because; 1. The frosting recipe didn't make enough for the whole cake, if you want to frost the sides, you need to double up the recipe. 2. The frosting is grainy and a bit flat tasting. I'd recommend buying coconut extract and using it in both the cake and frosting. Double the frosting recipe and do add some salt to the cake recipe for balance in flavor. I used sweetened coconut flakes that were already chopped up, and put some on top of the finished cake. All in all, a keeper recipe.
