How to Make Coconut Creme "Better Than Sex" Cake

Step-by-Step

  1. Prepare cake mix according to package directions in a 13x9 baking pan; cool. Do not remove cake from pan.
  2. Poke holes all over the entire cake until it resembles a pegboard! (I use a plastic orange peeler from Tupperware; it's about the thickness of a pencil.)
  3. In a small bowl mix together sweetened condensed milk and Coco Lopez until smooth and pour over entire cake; refrigerate overnight.
  4. Spread cool whip evenly over top of cake, and sprinkle with flaked coconut. Serve immediately!!!
  5. OPTIONAL: I sometimes like to add crushed pineapple to this cake. Drain as much of the juice from the can as possible, and spread crushed pineapple across top of cake after it has been refrigerated, and prior to adding cool whip. It's AHHHHHMAZING! :)
