One reviewer mentioned serving this at a wedding. THAT makes loads of sense. For a formal setting, with small bits of this and that, this is a very, very, very, very nice alternative. As for our family - in a family-dessert setting? One of us LOVED this cake (youngest son). Next oldest son loved the texture, BUT wanted way more chocolate (that didn't stop him from eating a substantial wedge!) I agreed that the texture was very nice, BUT that more chocolate would be a 'fuller' experience, but then, I'm experiencing that time in life when I crave chocolate. Dh, who doesn't typically like coconut, could stand this cake in spite of the coconut, but was happy enough to see the fellas take the cake with them when they headed off to see their friends this evening. I was certainly not ashamed to have them sharing this cake. It IS a nice cake. And in a single-type-of-dessert-setting, for those who like a moderate amount of chocolate, it makes all the sense in the world. For the rest of us, if this is the only dessert on the menu, this needs to have no chocolate, or gobs or chocolate - either way would be sublime for anyone methinks, even if some love the cake as is (which is great for them). The texture, again, was very, very wonderful.
