I, too, added more coconut extract than called for and am glad I did. Additionally, I used coconut milk instead of cream of coconut since I couldn't find the latter in my grocery store - cake turned out just fine! A suggestion for final presentation: adding pineapple chunks around the cake (and a few on top) ended up being a really well-received idea. The pineapple mixed REALLY well with the coconut flavor. I also suggest baking this in two round pans and then layering (just make sure you make twice as much whip cream so that you have enough for putting in between layers).
