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

"This is just what i wanted. I've had this cake before and my family loves it. So it's a keeper! And it's really easy! I made 9" cakes and used a recipe and a half. I cut three layers in half to make 6 layers. Awesome!"

"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."
