I treated this recipe more like a concept....lots of substitutions, and it still worked out wonderfully! I didn't need a big fancy cake, so I baked the cake in two 8x8 pans - one for now, one for the freezer. I used a coconut cake mix, and the 'low fat preparation'. For the 'frosting' I used fatfree cream cheese, the cup and a half of powdered sugar, then sugar free vanilla pudding mix, the crushed pineapple, just one can of drained mandarin oranges, and fat free cool whip. Even though I had reduced the 1 can of mandarin oranges, I still had plenty of topping, and the cake is really tasty, even with all the reduced fat and reduced sugar options I used. Thanks for this really lovely flavor combination!
