Tried this coconut cake and it was delicious! I only looked at the first two reviews and they were very helpful. What I had to work around initially was the photo showed a layer cake and the recipe is for a 9x13. Would like to know other opinions on which works better. For Easter, I was preferring the layer look. Much more elegant! I used the coconut milk (unsweetened) and with almost the entire can of sweetened condensed milk. The mixture was more runny than I expected. Because I made the cake in two layers, I put the mixture in a measuring cup and drizzled over the layers, which I placed on a cutting board, side by side. I was careful to not poke all the way through the layers, and any sauce that ended up on the board was due to it running down the layer and off. I did not use it all, in total it made a little more than 2 cups and I think about 1/2 cup was leftover. I did cool it before putting it in the fridge, like was suggested in the second review. I recommend whipping up the frosting just before you serve it or that morning. I did not have the time to do that so I had to frost the night before, the cake subsequently ran. After a little patching the next day it was fine and was a big hit!
