Cake Recipe needs tweaking, but otherwise gets raves!
I have made this recipe twice for holidays to rave reviews. I made it the first time and followed the cake recipe. The cake was disappointing but I still served it and everyone in my family still liked it. The cake recipe made a flat, chewey cake...resembling fluffy leather more than cake. So the next year I replaced that cake with angel food cake and I swapped out plain greek yogurt for honey vanilla greek yogurt in the whipped topping and shaved a little white chocolate over the top. Let me tell ya...OMG! Amazing, spot on! No complaints, I will make this again. One person said she could not get enough of it & it reminded her of the beach. Since I served this at Thanksgiving & Christmas it is great for serving a crowd at holidays. Coconut and Cranberry are an nontraditional combination at holidays, but you will find that everyone is pleasantly surprised and will come back for seconds!
Pros: Amazing flavor, healthy, untraditional yet crowd pleasing
Cons: Cake recipe does not work
