    I love these kinds of cakes. Looks like I could just dig into it and eat it off the screen.

    Susan, This looks simply amazing, I am drooling on the screen ! My hubby and son do not like coconut, but I don't care, I have to make this cake. I will call my sister and my best friend they will gladly help me eat it ! I am helping plan a 40th wedding anniversary party, I bet these would make darling little mini cakes. If I decide to do that I will take pictures. Thanks for posting, I wonder if this would qualify for the new FLOUR POWER contest ? I bet it would, try it ! No, never mind, I don't want to have to compete against this cake ! tee hee

    If you make cupcakes, please post them. The cake is very good...I was going to use a marshmellow frosting with the coconut but I think it would have been too too sweet.
