Just ok

Made this for a birthday luncheon. I was disapointed in it. I thought it was dry. Even with the topping, I thought it was dry. I would not try this again. Glad I did try it.

I left out the coconut and it was just as good. We can't have coconut.

So Goooood!

I made this for a special occasion for my husband who loves caramel and coconut. He was not disappointed! It was easy to make and very moist. My only complaint is that it was gone way too fast.

Having make cakes a lot, you get tired of the same old frostings. This topping is a delicious and great idea for a cake frosting. Also, I'm a caramel lover, so I drizzled just a little more caramel topping over the cake. I will definitely make it again!
