Every time I make this cake I get RAVE REVIEWS! The gushing, oohing and ahhing makes me laugh because this recipe is so stinking easy! I know I’ll get some eye rolling from you master bakers out there, but really….with something so good, we just need to get over the fact that this cake is from a box mix.
Have fun making this cake and again, it’s ok that you’re using a cake mix….no one will know unless you tell them. Just sit back and enjoy all the love comin’ your way.
Coconut cake so good no one will know you used a box.
