Easy Peezy Coconut Cake


Everyone's still asleep at the casa this morning so i thought I'd post real quick. 
Yesterday we went to a little cul-de-sac Memorial day /slash welcoming some new neighbors in the hood celebration. We had to bring a dessert and I brought over this easy peezy Coconut Cake. 
It's one of my families favorites and it got rave reviews. So here are the deets in case you need a last minute idea for that party your headed out to.

1-box of yellow cake mix
1-can condensed milk
1-can of Creme de Coconut (usually found in the international foods section)
1-large container Cool Whip

Follow the directions on the box for making your cake in a pan.
Take the condensed milk and the creme de coconut and mix together in a bowl. Set aside.
Once the cake is cooled, find some kind of round-ish object and poke holes all over the cake. Now pour that Coconut mixture into the holes filling them up until it's all gone.
Add your cool whip on top and refrigerate for 2-4 hours. The more chilled the better.

That's it. I told you it was easy peezy.
And for people like me who love coconut but don't like the string pieces of coconut it's perfect.

What was left of it....:)

I'm off to organize my craft room today. It has gotten so bad...like i can hardly walk in there.
The whole thing can be overwhelming for me so hubs is going to help get me get better organized.
That's one of his many strengths. Grateful for it too bc he's such a big help..:)

Have a great Memorial Day!
