1Make cake mix according to directions on box. when done, remove from oven and poke numerous holes in the top of the cake. While still warm, slowly pour the mixture of the sweetened milk & coconut cream over the cake until absorbed.
2Keep poking holes as necessary. (even if it looks like it is sort of falling apart from holes, they seem to all seal up with the wet mixture.)
3Chill in refrigerator overnight. Next day, cover top with cool whip & shredded coconut.
If you make it an extra day in advance then freeze it after topping, it is easier to cut slightly frozen. ENJOY!
