Macaroon Torte Cake

Someone asked if I could make a coconut cake. Without thinking, I said yes. But I had never made something like that -- ever. It's more exotic than your usual chocolate cake with cream cheese frosting. I searched for the right recipe, both online and in my cookbooks. Nothing seemed tasty enough. So, I decided to improvise. My macaroons went over very well with co-workers, so I tried to incorporate that into the cake. This is the result.
