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

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

Step-By-Step

1mix up sugar, coconut and sour cream. Put in refrigerater to chill
2Make 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
3Split 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
4Save out 1 cup of mixture from step 1. Spread the rest of it between the layers of the cake
5Mix the saved out cup of coconut mixture with the Cool Whip. Spread this over the cake for frosting. Keep in refrigerator.
