  • ingredients on the back of your cake mix
  • 15-ounce can of coconut cream

Step 1:

Get your yellow cake mix and bake the cake according to package instructions in a 9 x 13 baking dish. If you want a bakery-style cake, substitute milk for the water and melted butter for the oil.

Step 2:

Once the cake is done baking, remove it from the oven and poke holes all over the cake using a fork. Do not use anything bigger than the fork tines as the filling has a watery consistency. If you put big holes, it will only seep all the way to the bottom. Make sure the fork only goes about 3/4 of the cake and not all the way through.

Step 3:

In a large bowl, mix 15 oz of coconut cream and 14 oz of sweetened condensed milk.

Step 4:

Slowly pour the mixture over the cake and spread it all over. Push the liquid as much as possible into the holes with a spoon. Cool the cake completely before icing the cake.

Step 6:
