The Cake Slice bakers (TCS) ~ Caribbean Coconut Cake with rum (icing)

The Cake Slice bakers have the following recipes to bake for December 2016:
Coffee and Walnut Cake, Paul A. Young's Torta Gianduja,
Caribbean Coconut Cake with Rum, and Gingerbread
this is my adaptation of the
Caribbean Coconut Cake with Rum ~ pg 25
I dry pan fried the freshly grated coconut
into the dryness I desired
some of it went into the cake batter,
and used the final golden coconut gratings 
(longer frying time) for the topping
At half the recipe (which I regret doing so)
there were six cupcakes! a mini loaf and a small round cake
not too shabby for half the recipe!
we were supposed to pipe thin criss-cross lines
with the icing... but I tried and the lines were not even
so I just spread the icing, 
which has coconut cream, icing sugar and rum,
on the tops of the cakes
(for the cupcakes I dip the tops into the icing)
which help hold the coconut topping in place!
why is it that when I bake half a recipe, it turn out to be a super delish cake?
the crumb was tender and just moist enough.
The Cake Slice is baking from
"World Class Cakes" by Roger Pizey, for our new season!

Good to know that this is not a recipe to do half of. Love the golden coconut on the cupcakes!

It sounds like a wonderful recipe and I like that you can do half if you want to. I am a big fan of coconut, so I am going to have to try this one.
