I made this for a party and everyone loved it! I only put half the coconut milk/pineapple juice mixture on top because I was afraid it would be soggy. It came out just right.

I made this cake for co-workers and they loved it! I made the cake and added the coconut mixture the night before and refrigerated it. I added the whipped topping the next day and the cake was wonderful! I will definitely make this again!

Good, but I didn't think the cake itself had much of a coconut flavor. It was VERY moist. I, too, didn't use all the mixture because I was afraid it would be a mess. I made a layer cake and mixed some crushed pineapple into the whipped cream. I sprinkled coconut all over the cake after it was frosted. YUMMY!!

This is a new favorite at office parties and family gatherings! Everyone raves, and it is so easy! Delicious and perfect for the summer months. I follow the directions exactly and it is perfect! Make it and you won't be dissapointed!

I'm not sure how I feel about this recipe's taste. I don't get a distinct coconut or pineapple taste. I am going to let it sit a little longer and try it again. Definitely would reduce the amount of Cool Whip.

Friend made this for my birthday and it was very good! I can't wait to make this myself. I may mix pineapple with the cool whip and toast some coconut and sprinkle on top.

Tastes better after being refrigerated overnight. I was disapppointed though that the sauce never thickened and the cake was "floating" in it in the pan. Was hoping for a pudding type consistency here. I bought Cool Whip to use for the frosting but we ended up just adding it to individual servings. This cake is VERY VERY sweet and to me, doesn't really need the added sugar. Some of the family didn't want it at all..
