Toasted Coconut Pudding Cake

READY IN: 45mins

This is so yummy! And so easy! It's a nice change from chocolate. Well, maybe once in awhile! If you have trouble finding the toasted coconut instant pudding, and even I sometimes find it hard to find, you can choose from a couple of things. Purchase coconut instant pudding, or purchase vanilla instant pudding,toast some packaged coconut and toast it. The recipe for the frosting follows.
