I used a chocolate fudge cake mix (it's what I had on hand, plus I like the combo of chocolate & coconut) I also use the fat end of a chopstick to poke the holes & made the holes about an 1" apart so I had lots of good sized holes to pour the coconut/Sweetened condensed milk combo into, so I didn't find that there was "too much" liquid like many reviewers found. You just want to pour very slowly and allow the mixture to settle into the holes. I topped with light cool whip (I don't care for the "greasy" taste that the full fat cool whip leaves me with) & toasted coconut. For me personally, maybe using a chocolate cake mix was a mistake, since I didn't really pick up the flavor of the coconut cream, but I am giving the 4 stars because it got lots of raves from people at the party, and it does make a VERY moist cake without it being mushy - I left the leftovers with the hosts and they made a point to tell me last night how AWESOME that cake was.
