I'm thinking of using the WASC (with oil) recipe, and substituting the water with coconut milk. Use a traditional sour cream w/ flaked coconut filling, and then a buttercream frosting with tons of flaked coconut all over it. Is there any reason why this shouldn't work? Thinking I'll do this for Thanksgiving.

Did something similar a couple of years ago. It got raves!

Happy Baking!

This recipe is excellent if you want to use a mix. It uses coconut CREAM, though, not milk. You can find the coconut cream at Asian food stores or in the mixed drink mixers section at the grocery store.

Yes, I used cream of coconut too. It made a delicious cake! The cream of coconut, or coconut cream has more fat in it then the milk and makes for a more moist cake!
Good Luck!

Here's a photo of the cake I made...

Lovely cake! I will go on a search for this coconut cream. You said an Asian grocery store, right?

Walmart has it with the Bloody Mary and Margarita mixes, but I like the brand I buy at the Asian food store better. I pay about $1.50/15 oz. can for it at the Asian food store. It makes the most luscious cake in the world!!
