"This cake tastes like no other coconut cake - moist beyond belief with the coconut flavor perfuming every bite. Your house will smell divine while this is baking. I made this for my French boss who didn't believe that good baking could come from cake mixes. Voila! He's a convert. What you don't eat as a dessert tastes fabulous the morning after with coffee." — by Simply American

"Do you ever buy too much of fresh strawberries, blueberries, or raspberries in the summer simply because they look so rich and sweet? Me too! So I invented this concoction to avoid the tragedy of having to throw out rotten, wasted berries! Perfect for large gatherings, picnics (bring wet-naps/wipes, trust me) or appetizer-type parties! Very simple to make! Everyone loved it the first time I made it. You can also substitute blackberries, banana slices, or an appropriate fruit of your choice. Careful with the blueberries though, they may stain!" — by JAYMOOSE
