I made this in a bundt pan and made a few changes. I added coconut cream instant pudding mix to cake mix. Instead of the plain water for the cake mix I used half coconut milk half water. For the milk you pour over the cake and let set I used the rest of the coconut milk with half the sugar. My cake did not absorb all the liquid over night and I had to pour off some the next day. I still used the cool whip and coconut on top. The cake was very good and very moist everyone liked it! I'll probably make it again!
