Pina Colada Cake

Have had several similar cakes in the past, but think I've tweaked this one pretty well! (My family thinks so!)

It's light and refreshing, and it is actually better after a couple of days! Time allows the cake to become moister and more flavorful.

This is a great dessert for a large crowd or get together.

We love an easy cake recipe. Especially, when they're this tasty! Cream of coconut helps make this delicious cake moist. The crushed pineapple adds a nice, crunchy texture while the whipped topping is smooth and creamy. Definitely make this ahead of time to cool in the fridge. The longer it sits the better it gets.
