Our family is hooked! I made this cake for my Mother's 60th Birthday Party 2 weeks ago. I am preparing it again at the request of another family member, for their birthday!

Very, very tasty! And not really all that difficult. The only tricky part is putting the layers on top of each other which goes pretty well if you don't put too much filling between them. It's a really nice spin on a layered coconut cake.
