REVIEW: 5 star recipe rating
Fantastic, if you love coconut this is your cake. I used a white box cake, but I ended up only using about 1/2 of the coconut milk/condensed milk mixture, it was just too much to put it all over the cake. Also I put it in the fridge after I had poured the mixture over it and the coconut and nuts. Then I kept it in the fridge, very very yummy cooled.

This cake is mouth-watering! If you are a coconut lover, you must try this recipe. I've even made a "light" version with a little less calories by using light coconut milk, making the cake with applesause and using light whip topping.
