I was excited to try this recipe because of the combination of lemon and coconut. Like other reviewers have said, this recipe does take some time. I think the prep time listed in an underestimation. I was a little concerned when I separated the layers because the cake did seem dry and bland, but once I poured the delicious lemon filling on and let it soak in, the cake had a great lemon flavor. Definitely let the cake sit a couple of hrs before serving. The cake does have a dense texture, and is not comparable to the texture of a boxed cake mix. This was the main negative for me. The frosting is really sweet but tasty. For me, the best part is the filling which has a wonderful lemon flavor.
