As for making it directly from the recipe listed, this cake tastes no different than making it straight from the box. If you use just the coconut cream, sure it tastes good from the can, but it just gets so overwhelmed by the cake mix. I even tried putting it in the frosting (and I made a chocolate decorator frosting with some too) and I just couldn't taste it. I just don't think it's concentrated enough to use it as a flavouring in such small amounts with tons and tons of sugar just kind of ruining the flavour.
So, overall: the cake was good, but hardly a coconut cake. Tastes nothing like coconut without modifications to the recipe.
