This recipe is amazing. I used a white cake mix instead since that always reminds me of coconut cake. I also used coconut buttercream icing instead. 1/2 cup butter, 1/2 cup shortening, coconut flavoring, 1 lb powdered sugar, 2 or 3 TBS milk, and 2 cups coconut. It was so yummy. A HUGE hit on Easter!

This cake was great! I didn't even notice until after I put the cake in the oven that the cake mix I purchased already had pudding in it, and subsequently the cake required almost 45 minutes to bake. It turned out fine, though. I toasted some coconut in the oven for the topping. Will definitely make this again!

Oh my gosh!!! This cake is wonderful. I took a couple of you alls suggestions and made a 9 inch 2 layer. It was very pretty and scrumptous. I added chopped candied pecans in place of the walnuts and made a little extra frosting because we are frosting freaks. Will definately make again and again!
