Pina Colada Cake by Angie


  • 1/2 box of French Vanilla Cake from Duncan Hines
  • 1/2 box of Coconut Cake from Duncan Hines
  • 4 eggs
  • 1/2 cup of pineapple juice
  • 1/2 cup coconut milk
  • 3/4 cup rum
  • 1 cup crushed pinapple
  • 2 cups coconut flakes
  • Your favorite buttercream recipe


  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees, prep pans with parchment and bakers joy.
  2. Mix all ingredients listed except for the pineapples and coconut and leave out 1/4 cup of the rum. Mix until thoroughly blended. Then add 1/2 cup of the crushed pineapples, and 1/2 cup of the coconut and fold in.
  3. Once the cakes are out of the oven use my moist cake baking tip and wrap in Press Nseal wrap and freeze. Freeze over night. Let the cakes defrost, then poke holes with a toothpick into the cake layers. Drizzle the rum over each cake. Build an icing dam and fill with the remaining pineapples and sprinkle about a 1/4 cup of the coconut flakes. Ice the cake fully then press the remaining coconut flakes into the icing all over the cake. Decorate and garnish as you wish.

this cake was sooo good! i made it this past weekend for my daughter's birthday (minus the rum!). It turned out well and everyone loved it. I have a feeling I will be making this for many more birthdays this year!

That is odd that it didn't print...

Step 2 - spray pans with Bakers Joy on the sides and line pans with parchment. Bake at 325 degrees until done about 45 to 55 minutes.

THis cake is amazing! I had to change it a little because I couldn't find coconut cake mix, so I added coconut extract to the white cake and didn't use the rum. I paired it with, pineapple, strawberry creamcheese filling and it tasted soooooo good. Thank you for sharing

I'm going to try it with variations. I don't want to give my kids (5, 5, & 7 yrs old) rum. I don't have coconut cake, but I do have the pineapple upside down cake mix, coconut milk, pineapple chunks w/juice.
