Matt's Pina Colada Cake

Today is my husband Matt's 40th birthday! This is his birthday cake request, a recipe he created! If you like Pina Colada...

Matt's Pina Colada Cake

1 box white cake mix

4 eggs

½ cup water

¼ cup rum

1/3 cup vegetable oil

4 boxes of Jell-O White Chocolate instant pudding mix

3 cups Cream of Coconut

3 cups milk

8 oz. crushed pineapple, drained

½ cup toasted coconut

Preheat oven according to cake mix package directions.  Mix cake mix, eggs, water, rum and vegetable oil.  Grease and flour two nine-inch cake pans.  Pour batter evenly into cake pans, bake according to package directions.

Combine Jell-O pudding mix with Cream of Coconut and milk.  Stir with a whisk until thickened, chill until ready to ice the cakes.

Remove cakes from oven, cool on wire rack.  Slice off rounded top of each cake to make them level.  Slice each cake into two layers, resulting in four cake layers.

Spread the jell-o over the first layer, then sprinkle with 1/3 of the pineapple.  Top with another layer of cake, and repeat.  After putting the fourth layer on top, spread the remaining jell- over the top and sides of the cake.  Sprinkle the top of the cake with toasted coconut.  Chill until ready to serve.

Happy Birthday Matt!
