I found that I could use my cake pan as a guide to make the cuts on the two layers that need to be shaped. I turned the pan upside down and pressed very gently to make an impression then used the impression as a guide for cutting. It the cake is very fragile you could put the pan in place gently and dust with powdered sugar or cocoa then use that as a guide. Either way it helps get the curve.

To reduce the sodium and sugar content, you could eliminate the coconut and tint a tub of cool whip green and use that for the frosting instead. This is also helpful for those who don't care for coconut.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Terry, your high sodium and sugar is because of the coconut, I quite sure. Terry, your high sodium and sugar is because of the coconut, I quite sure. Have you ever checked the bag for the nutritional facts. Sit down first! I love the taste of coconut, but I too am concerned about both sodium and sugar. So maybe green sprinkles would be a good substitute. I'm very eager to try this recipe.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of my son's birthdays falls on St. One of my son's birthdays falls on St. Patrick's Day. I made this cake for him this year. It was delicious and EASY (and I'm no pro cake decorator, trust me!) I recommend this to anyone at any talent level. Guests loved it - and so did the birthday boy! :)
