This cake is delicious, nobody could tell it was a lighter version! I only had 2 cake pans the same size, so I sliced the cakes in half to make 4 layers, and just made a little extra frosting. It came out beautiful, and tasted great!

I've made this a number of times. If you really like coconut, try using coconut cake, and I prefer the white over the yellow cake mix. I omit walnuts because my family doesn't care for them, but it's delicious without them. Because I don't have three pans the same size, my cake is only a double-layer, but it works just fine. This is a very easy recipe and I love the substitutions that make it more healthful. HINT: Be sure to toast, the coconut. That makes ALL the difference!
