This cake takes three days to 'marinate', but is so delicious that it is worth waiting for! This is my favorite cake that I make for my own birthday every year!

1 box
white cake mix (bake as directed, except i used whole eggs instead of egg whites).
2 c
sugar
3 pkg
frozen coconut (in the freezer section with frozen fruits).
16 oz
sour cream
1 pkg
whipped topping

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Bake cake as directed in 8 or 9 inch round pans.

Cool completely.
3
Cut each cake into two layers. You should now have four layers.
4

6
Spread icing onto the sides and crumble remaining package of coconut onto the top and sides of the cake.

Refrigerate for 3 days to 'marinate'. Trust me, it's definetly worth it! Enjoy!

For years my husband has talked about his grandmothers coconut cake and unfortunately she died before we met and no one had the recipe. I hunted and found this recipe and made it and OH it was it :) He couldn't be more happy! Thanks!

I am interested in trying your recipe BUT...I have never heard of frozen coconut before. Can I just freeze the shredded coconut? I can't get frozen coconut here in Australia. I can get regular packaged coconut that is shredded some sweeted some not and fresh coconuts...should I grade one of those and freeze it? The fres wouldn't be sweetened at all.

I would like to know the size of the whipped topping. I'm afraid that if I don't the the right one it will not taste the same.
