The most requested cake of my family, friends and customers. For a really homemade taste, add 1 tsp. pure vanilla, substitute 1/2 -2/3 of water for cake with coconut milk, use white chocolate pudding for icing and again, use 1/2-2/3 coconut milk instead of just plain milk,
baste the cake layers while hot with the coconut milk and refrigerate before stacking layers. For a "show piece",I use 2 butter recipe cake mixes, and I double the icing recipe. This allows you to "torte" the layers and gives the option of adding a raspberry filling between every other layer. Also I use a large bag of coconut and just put as much as I can on the sides and top. Then just sit back and enjoy the raves, ooh's and ahh's!
