Glenda's Coconut Cake Recipe

Southerners are famous for their funeral food. Almost every woman in the South has a special funeral recipe. Mine are Mimoi's pound cake and Hot Chicken Salad. Here is a recipe that should be added to everybody's repetoire.  Glenda Hanks brought this cake to my mom's wake.  So many people loved it and asked for the recipe that I just had to get it from Glenda.  She graciously shared it with me.

1   -  Box French Vanilla Cake Mix, (mix and bake according to instructions)
Pour into a 9 X 13 sheet cake pan and bake

1 Can - (Coco Lopez)
Mix with hand mixer,  1-2 mins, to reduce any lumpiness.
Remove cake from oven and, while still hot, punch holes with a straw  in the top of cake.

Cool cake completely.

Icing
