This is one of my favorite cakes.It is moist and delicious.It makes a large cake. I use white cake mix as I think it makes a lighter cake.
Use as much coconut to cover the cake,I usually buy a bag of coconut and always have some leftover.I found this recipe many years ago on the back of a can of Coco Lopez cream of coconut.By the way,cream of coconut can be found on the liquor aisle in the store.
I make this cake for Christmas ever year without fail.
