Got this recipe from a girl I went to nursing school with. It's so good, I also call it funeral cake 'cause it's good enough to take to a wake. I have also used Greek yoghurt and fat free cool whip to make this. It lends itself nicely to decorating with flowers, candy, or fruit.

Ingredients

basic butter cake mix
8 oz
sour cream
2 pkg
frozen coconut
2 c
sugar
1 pkg
cool whip, 8 ounce tub

Directions Step-By-Step

1
mix up sugar, coconut and sour cream. Put in refrigerater to chill
2
Make butter cake according to package directions. You can make 2 or 3 cakes, depending on the size of pan you use. I have also used a pound cake for the cake recipe
3
Split the layers in half, making sure that they are flat so the cake lays right. I save the tops and add all of them to the top of the layers so the cake stands up really tall
4
Save out 1 cup of mixture from step 1. Spread the rest of it between the layers of the cake
5
Mix the saved out cup of coconut mixture with the Cool Whip. Spread this over the cake for frosting. Keep in refrigerator.
