I made this cake for Easter and was pleasantly surprised at the taste of the frosting. I rated it 4 stars because I think the recipe would do better with a different type of cake (since mine had a distinctive "cake mix" taste). I even used coconut milk in place of the water in my cake mix, but the coconut flavor didn't really come through. This is overall a good cake though. I would never have thought of using sour cream in my frosting, but letting it sit overnight in the refrigerator really let the flavors meld. One suggestion I would make is to use half the amount of sugar if you are using sweetened coconut flakes, since the full cup makes the icing pretty sweet. I also made my cake in a Bundt pan, and I think the next time I'd use round layers since I think the cake would really benefit from having icing between the layers to really get the coconut flavor soaked in. This cake is a hit with my hubby and my 4 year old son!
