Strawberry Coconut Cake

This recipe was a request from Zack. It is an excellent selection, thanks!

(It reminds me of a giant pink snow ball!)

I pretty much followed this recipe word or word, but I wished I had mixed it for about five minutes longer. The gelatin makes it nice and fluffy, so the cake turns out supper moist. I used a strawberry Jell-O mix with white cake mix, but I can also see lemon being delicious in a yellow cake mix, or raspberry in a chocolate cake mix for a swell red velvet cake. The coconut is also a nice addition to hide all my mistakes in frosting it. Overall I'd say this is an excellent quick and easy cake recipe.

Adding wax paper to the bottom of your cake pan really helps to keep it from sticking. I do this when I bake all my cakes.

This would also be good with sliced strawberries on top if you're not a coconut fan.

I use pudding or jello in all my recipes for moistness.

Great blog
