Yum Yum Cake
Yellow cake mix
Instant vanilla pudding and pie filling
Optional: Sprinkle additional coconut over top and decorate with maraschino cherries or pecans (I use all three!) Cover and keep refrigerated. This is best if chilled a few hours before serving.
Prepare cake mix according to pkg directions and bake in 13x9" prepared pan. Cool 15 minutes, then poke holes down through cake with utility fork. Meanwhile, combine 1-1/2 C.milk, sugar and 1/2 C. coconut in saucepan. Bring to boil; reduce heat and simmer 1 minute. Carefully spoon over warm cake, allowing liquied to soak down through the holes. Cool completely. Beat cream cheese, then gradually blend in 2 C. milk. Add pudding mix and beat at low speed for 2 minutes. Spread evenly over cake. Spoon pineapple over pudding layer. Fole 1/2 C. coconut into whipped topping and spread over pineapple.
