Taste the Tropics with this delicious cake! Your family and friends will think you really went all out, when they taste this Yummy Cake! And to keep things simple, I created it using a boxed cake mix. What could be easier than that. The frosting is really amazing! Try using it on cinnamon rolls. Tastes like the kind you'll find on that really popular cinnamon roll franchise. Enjoy!
