This three-layer orange cake is pretty enough for company, but it's so simple to fix that you'll find yourself making it all the time. A boxed mix keeps it convenient while the pineapple-coconut filling makes it a crowd-pleaser. -Kara De la vega, Suisun City, California

I baked this for a family dinner. There were just 5 of us so I had a lot left over, but I like it so much I had a piece for every meal till it was gone. Family like it to. I like the coconut and fruit filling. It really makes the cake taste like hawaiian sunset.

Loved this recipe! So moist. Of course mine didn't look at pretty as the one in the picture lol...I to didn't let the pineapple drain enough...but I think that it let the juice get down into the cake and make it even more moist.... anywho...it was YUMMY!!!

This is a wonderfully moist, refreshing cake. Make sure to drain the pineapple well so that the icing isn't too "soupy".
