This is an awesome take on the fun and delicious poke cake! I love all of the ideas, especially to toast the coconut and to add coconut cream pudding as part of the frosting. I would add some diced pineapple and/or some Maraschino cherries on top to make a pina colada in dessert form!

OMG, this is the BEST cake I've ever eaten.

I made this but I changed a little something. I added Coconut Cream Instant pudding to the Cool Whip frosting, toasted the coconut and added chopped pecans to the coconut. Everyone love it!!
