Coconut Cake Supreme Recipe

I make most cakes from scratch, but during the holiday rush, this recipe that starts with a mix buys me some time. Most eager eaters don't suspect the shortcut when you dress up the cake with fluffy coconut filling and frosting. -Betty Claycomb, Alverton, Pennsylvania

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jul. 24, 2014

"I've also made this since first seeing it in TOH many years ago. It is always a hit! I have used a lemon cake mix in lieu of the yellow cake mix and it is delicious! I rarely get a second piece. One of the most simple yet amazingly good cake recipes ever."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Apr. 1, 2014

"I made this cake for a funeral shortly after receiving my Taste of Home magazine. I had rave reviews from others, though I hadn't tasted it. I have made it many times over the years. Usually I use white cake mix instead of yellow. I no longer have mint growing in my yard and miss that extra touch for the decoration. My daughter just asked for the recipe and I was happy it popped up when I searched online so that I don't have to copy it out for her."

MY REVIEW

"This cake was just ok. I decided to try it because it looked easy, had mostly positive reviews, and my husband loves coconut.The filling was very soupy, so I only used a small amount between the layers so they would not slide off each other. I had a lot of filling/frosting left over. I added extra coconut to the frosting, but it still didn't taste very "coconut-y". I don't know if I will make this cake again."
