    Kimbo's Note:

    This is quick because of the cake mix base, but it's luscious with its whipped cream frosting and loads of coconut. This would be terrific for Easter. Tint the coconut and add jellybeans on top! This is a combination of a couple of recipes from The Cake Mix Doctor. Please keep refrigerated. :)

      This was delicious. I used white cake mix and it fluffed up enough that I used three pans, which was great. It allowed me to put the "frosing" and coconut between all layers and it was really rich. The layers are so tender they tend to break when handling, so I let them cool in the pans which I had lines with parchment paper. Thanks for an easy, quick and wonderful recipe.
