I have made a lot of cakes in my lifetime and this is the worse I have ever made whome ever submitted this needs to take it out of there. Even the frosting is terrible. I would not recommend...

its a very flavour less cake so i would change the coconuts for fruit which suits you and for the frosting i would put chocolate instead for coconut flakes
