My sons love cake that has got liquor in it, they also love chocolate, and anything that has got coconut in it is yummy too. So the combination of liquor, chocolate, coconut and the sweetness of an orange made this cake a hit for the boys! You can always replace the liquor with orange juice to make this a child friendly cake.
