Yummy soft cake with candy topping! I made it as directed with butter and unsweetened flaked coconut. Some day I would like to try it with all coconut products: coconut oil, coconut sugar, coconut cream, and organic unsweetened coconut. I think that would be fabulous, but didn't want to change the recipe too much for the first time. Made for the Billboard recipe tag game.
