Oh. Mah. Gah. This was so good. I made it for Easter dinner dessert and EVERYONE raved. So easy to make too, a real no-brainer. I used an angel food cake mix because they were out of premade ones in my grocery store bakery, even that was extremely easy because you just add water only to the mix, whip, pour into an ungreased tube pan and bake for an hour. I would not bother making an angel food cake from scratch when it is going into a trifle anyways... This tasted like coconut cream pie, everyone loved it, will definitely make it again, thanks!
