"This took a little longer for me to make because I couldn't find a frozen pound cake the right size so I had to bake one.The coconut mixture was very good.mine didn't turn out as pretty as the picture but the taste was good this would be a good dessert to make for unexpected guests if you kept the ingredients on hand"

"I used non-frozen pound cake product and did not add chocolate in the middle. cake was not high enough to allow for 4 layers, 3 works very nicely. I also used the Coco Real product in place of condensed milk and only added nuts to top of cake in case of food allergies. Very easy & delicious!"

"Well, I fell for this one. The cake sounded good so I clicked on the site only to find you have to be a subscriber.  I used to subsribe to TOH but let the subscription lapse because I could never find a recipe I liked.  Guess I'll have to quench the craving!"
