I am planning on making the Strawberry Cake with Strawberry Cream Cheese Frosting this weekend and would like to omit the coconut and nuts. If I do this, am I seriously altering the goodness of this cake and would I need to put something else in to make up for what I've left out? Will it still be moist?
Also, does it need to be in 3 layers? I only have two round pans and don't want to buy another if it's unnecessary. Do I need to change baking times if I use only two pans? Thank you for your patience...I'm a novice baker.
