Prep Time: 5 minutes
Total Time: 40minutes

1 box - white cake mix
1 can - cream of coconut
1 container Cool Whip
Shredded unsweetened coconut
Canned cherries


One box of white cake mix (any kind) prepared as directed and baked in a 9X13 pan.

While still warm poke holes about every 2 inches in cake with the end of a wooden spoon.

Pour one can of cream of coconut over cake making sure you get it into the holes (be sure to stir cream of coconut before you pour it because it separates in the can).
