This was exceptional! The only thing I have to add is this: Make sure you let the coconut filling cool before attempting to use it. I didn't let it cool and when I started frosting with the chocolate, I had the coconut oozing out all over and it made a real mess. Fortunately, putting it in the fridge for an hour saved it. Once it set a bit I kind of smooshed everything back it and refrosted over with more chocolate frosting. It ended up looking great and tasting even better! I used devil's food cake mix and milk chocolate time I think I will try dark chocolate frosting. Thanks!

For my taste, the marshmallow/evaporated milk mixture was not sweet enough. Maybe sweetened condensed milk instead would make it taste okay?

Delicious cake. You could almost cut the filling recipe in 1/2. Everyone love this cake.

Although my family isn't big fans of boxed cake mixes and containerized frostings, I followed this to the letter, and I'm so glad I did! For this quick and easy recipe, we were rewarded with outstanding flavor and texture. Thanks Vickeylee.

I am a true coconut freak and I LOVE this cake!! I made sure to make this cake a part of my last two birthdays and will continue to in the future. It is wonderful!

Lovely filling that you could use in virtually any cake. It was delicious! I made a cake from scratch but added the brewed coffee instead of water, and I used my own butter cream frosting. The filling is such a wonderful addition - thanks!

Sooooo good. Shelby, there is another recipe elsewhere for the same filling, except it also contained 1 cup of sugar. I think that too sweet, maybe 1/2 cup? Cook milk, butter & sugar 10 minutes, then stir in marshmallows. Continue as directed, but do remember to cool filling before using it.
