"My favorite Coconut Cake recipe, very good and super easy"
"I've also made this since first seeing it in TOH many years ago. It is always a hit! I have used a lemon cake mix in lieu of the yellow cake mix and it is delicious! I rarely get a second piece. One of the most simple yet amazingly good cake recipes ever."
"very easy to make and good tasting"
"I made this cake for a funeral shortly after receiving my Taste of Home magazine. I had rave reviews from others, though I hadn't tasted it. I have made it many times over the years. Usually I use white cake mix instead of yellow. I no longer have mint growing in my yard and miss that extra touch for the decoration. My daughter just asked for the recipe and I was happy it popped up when I searched online so that I don't have to copy it out for her."
"This cake was just ok. I decided to try it because it looked easy, had mostly positive reviews, and my husband loves coconut.The filling was very soupy, so I only used a small amount between the layers so they would not slide off each other. I had a lot of filling/frosting left over. I added extra coconut to the frosting, but it still didn't taste very "coconut-y". I don't know if I will make this cake again."
