"This cake is awesome when refrigerated overnight after pouring the milk mixture over the cake. Next day spread with the cool whip and coconut and place back in refrigerator until time to serve. I have always got raves for this cake."

"The cream of coconut is usually with the drink mixers in our grocery store Librartist. Look for the Margarita mix and it should be nearby!"
