The cake was pretty good. Mine came out a little dense, but I left out the pecans and coconut, which might have helped the structure a bit more. My coworkers loved it though! Instead of adding the pecans and coconut to the batter, I toasted slivered almonds and coconut and added them to the outside of the cake, after frosting. I also doubled the frosting, and per the reviews, used less powdered sugar, probably 5-6 cups in the doubled recipe. This is only the second really good cake recipe I've found from scratch, so thank you!
