Can you taste the coconut very strong?
user sharon henson sharonhenson - Jan 15, 2011
Jane, No the combination of the Five flavors is wonderful. even people that don't like coconut love this cake. You have to try it at least once. If you do, I promise you WILL bake it again.

Okay, I'll trust you! I'm sure it won't go to waste in my house anyway! I'm the only one who doesn't like coconut.
