the cooking time for the 2 cakes are waaaay off. try 40 mins instead of 20. if you're like me, i can't cut a cake into 2 horizontal halves correctly. so i ended up making just a 2-layer cake, instead of 4. since i did a 2-layer cake, you don't need as much coconut flakes or fruit; probably half the amount. the whipped cream was nice, but you definitely need to keep it chilled afterwards. from what i tasted from a piece of the edge (this cake was bday gift to someone), it was pretty tasty. i think it may be a little too sweet, considering you have fruit, toasted coconut, and whipped cream. 2 stars: the instructions need to be readjusted. Update: 2/7/2012 - The birthday guy said it was my best cake yet. So hence the jump from 2 stars to 4 stars. Everyone said that the cake was moist and flavorful and the fruit combo was awesome.
