Made into cupcakes so easier to pass out at work and WOW! I altered the recipe though and it was even better than the original. Try coconut creme pudding (Jell-O makes it), and pineapple supreme cake mix (I think by Duncan Hines) instead of the vanilla pudding and yellow cake mix. Also, for cupcakes you can use just 1 box of pudding and half the milk. Whipped cream stays firmer if you freeze the bowl you mix it in first. Try not to eat them all by yourself!

The name is certainly fake advertisement (or at least for some people sake, I hope so…). 1st of all, I would not suggest this cake for the winter time, I made it yesterday by the recipe and it was not what I was expecting. It was too cold to eat on such a cold day! The best thing about this was simply the box cake. The pudding was too much and the whipping cream mixture was so runny and simply sunk to the bottom. I appreciate the recipe, but I will not be making this one again.

I took this to a work potluck. I used Cool Whip and ommitted the nuts and coconut. I wasn't sure about how it would taste w/ the pudding, but it turned out really moist and yummy!

I made this for a Father's Day cookout, and everyone loved it! My grandmother said it is the best cake she's ever had. I used cool whip for the frosting to save some calories, and i thought it was delicious that way--perfect for summer. I also omitted the pecans and put some sliced pineapple chunks on top for garnish. Delicious!

You MUST let this cake sit overnight to get its full flavor! I made this on a Saturday, early afternoon and followed directions up to the point of the whipping cream. I covered and put in the fridge for 8 hours. I used cool whip in place of the whipping cream. I did not cover the entire cake with the coconut and nuts (I used walnuts). Due to nut allergies and personal taste preference with some guests, I topped only some pieces with the coconut and nuts. This tasted good but much better the next day. I think if I were to make a BTSC again, it would be the "chocolate" type.

I eliminated the nuts and cheated by using Cool Whip. It was soooo moist and scrumptious. Not a morsel remained!

This cake was GREAT!! I couldn't stop eating it...(literally) LOL I found that I should have left it in the pan, I tried to take it out, and it got VERY messy when I tried to put the pudding and whip topping on, but all the same, it was DELICIOUS!!! Thanks!
