      moist and delicious. i made it a sheet cake b/c i had a lot of people to feed. it was a hit. i made a few changes mostly b/c of ingredients i had on hand. i used a white cake mix and a coconut cream pudding and added some vanilla to the batter. i omitted the oil as well and put less coconut in the batter b/c of the pudding. and used unsweetened coconut. i've never made coconut cake before but if i ever do again i will make this one. thanks for a crowd pleaser.

      We enjoyed this cake. I made it in a bundt pan instead of round pans, and it was delicious! The cream cheese/coconut frosting was light and rewarding. I would make this again.
