Sunshine Cake

1 white cake mix, cooked according to package

1 can cream of coconut*

1 cup fresh or frozen pineapple, chopped

3/4 cup flaked coconut, toasted**

1 container Cool Whip

Prepare white cake mix according to package instructions and bake. Remove from oven and poke with a toothpick or skewer all over. In a small saucepan, warm the cream of coconut till it is liquid. Pour over warm cake. Sprinkle with chopped pineapple. Cover and allow it to sit in the fridge for 3 hours. Now it is time to top with cool whip and sprinkle with toasted coconut.

*Cream of coconut is found in the bar mixer aisle. Do not use coconut milk!

**Easy way to toast coconut- place shredded coconut on a paper plate. Put it in the microwave and cook 1-2 minutes. Watch it closely so it does not burn.
