Kimi's notes for this recipe:
A cake that any coconut lover would enjoy. I drizzle chocolate on mine and it complements the mounds candy bars.

Prepare both cake mixes according to box instructions. Use the coconut milk instead of water. Bake in greased 4-9in round baking pans. Bake 350F for 25 minutes or until wooden pick comes out clean.
Remove cakes from oven and cool for 10 minutes. Remove from pans and cool completely.
In a medium mixing bowl whip the 3 cans of vanilla frosting. Frost cake. To decorate sprinkle cake with coconut all around. Chop candy bars in bite size pieces and spread all around cake. Melt chocolate chips with a little shortening in the microwave. Drizzle all over cake.
Note: I keep all my cakes in the refrigerator

It is a favorite of many people. I made it for the headmaster at my sons school. My daughter just made it for her good friend and she told my daughter that no one better touch it.
