Comments: Lots of work but oh so ono!

Well, I finally tried the haupia cake recipe I submitted, and it
turned out pretty well. I just wanted to add a few notes to it:

The recipe is enough to make a single layer 9x13 cake. So to make
layers, double the recipe or use smaller pans proportionately. Chill
the haupia filling before spreading. I didn't and it kinda gooped all
over. If you chill it you can make the filling much thicker (both in
consistency and dimension). Chill the frosting before spreading too.
If your lower layers aren't flat, use a knife to cut it flat. The
filling doesn't sit on a rounded cake well.
