If you're dreaming of a tropical-tasting dessert that's a balmy breeze to bake, enjoy the richness of this to-die-for white Coconut Dream Cake that gets its special touch from real coconut.

What You'll Need:
  • 1 (18.25-ounce) package white cake mix, batter prepared according to package directions
  • 1 (12-to 14-ounce) package flaked or grated coconut, divided
  • 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, softened
  • 2 cups confectioners' sugar
  • 1 (6-ounce) package white baking bars, melted
What To Do:
  1. Mix 2 cups coconut into cake batter and bake according to package directions for two 9-inch round layers; let cool completely.
     
  2. In a large bowl, with an electric beater on medium speed, beat butter, confectioners' sugar, and melted white baking bars until fluffy and doubled in size. Add remaining coconut and mix until thoroughly combined.
     
  3. Place one cake layer upside-down on a serving platter and frost top. Place second layer over first and frost top and sides. Cover loosely and chill at least 2 hours before serving.
Notes
  • This recipe calls for flaked cocount, but have you ever wondered how to crack open a fresh coconut? Click here for our Test Kitchen's tips.
     
  • And to kick up the coconut flavor, you can toast the coconut in a skillet over medium heat until it's lightly browned -- be careful, it toasts quickly!
