The frosting tasted extraordinary, I'm only giving it 4 stars because it is tricky to get it to behave. The first time I made it I followed the reviews advice and added cornstarch, I then turned up the heat, stirring constantly, cooled it, and it turned out perfectly, the second time I tried it without the turning up the heat as high and the frosting did not solidfy at all, but it ended up being even more delicious then the first time. I ended scooping out the coconut/peacans and spreading it around the top of the layers, and then pouring the syrup all over the cake. I let it sit in the fridge for a while, took it out, and used a paper towel to wip up the excess liquid that had leaked out of the cake, and then I melted some chocolate chips in the microwave in a plastic bag, cut off the corner of the bag, and drizzled chocolate all over the top, and using a knife, spread the chocolate all over the sides. The effect was incredibly, the chocolate locked the moisture in the cake and it tasted even better than the first time, you can see pictures of this second attempt under my photos. also I suggest toasting the peacans and coconut before hand
