I love making cakes, the flavor and decor are unique to that cake for that person. I make each one from the heart and because of that, they are sooo good. Here is my halfway homemade cake recipe.

The Cake:

  • 1 box of White Cake Mix (follow box directions)
  • 1/2 bag of shredded coconut
  • 1 tbsp of vanilla extract
  • 3 tbsp of powdered sugar

Whip ingredients together until fluffy and pour into a greased baking pan. Cook as per box directions. Let cakes cool completely before adding filling.

The filling:

  • 1 Jello Vanilla Pudding mix

Follow box directions using regular milk and chill pudding. Spread between layers, then take the whole cake and place in the fridge overnight or freezer to set. The cold cake will not get hard, it stays fluffy yet firm.

The frosting:

  • 1 box of confectioner’s sugar
  • 1 stick of butter
  • 3 tbsp of milk
  • 1/2 bag of shredded coconut
  • 1 tbsp of vanilla extract

Soften the butter and add milk, then sugar and other ingredients. Whip until fluffy. Spread over cake then put back into the fridge or freezer to set the frosting.

This cake is fluffy and not very sweet, but balanced by the sweet sugar buttercream coconut frosting. I would say it tastes like a fluffy macaroon cake.
