If you love coconut this will be your favorite =) This Cake was put together for a friends Birthday and turned out fabulous so it was a keeper recipe. It is a bit time consuming but well worth your time! This is for sure not low calorie and very rich. It takes me a helper to make it but I am not your top of the line baker and use to making simple. It is so worth my time to make this and enjoy my friend who helps me with it =)
