Christmas Cake!

For our office Christmas Party this year, I made a Coconut Cream Cake! It was so delicious! So decadent you cannot eat it all the time, but what the heck! It's Christmas!!!

Coconut Cream Cake:

1 (18.25 ounce) package white cake mix
3 eggs
1/3 cup vegetable oil
1 cup water
1/2 teaspoon coconut extract
1 (14 ounce) can coconut cream
1 (14 ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
1 cup heavy whipping cream
1 tablespoon white sugar
1 cup flaked coconut

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour a 9x13 inch pan.

In a large bowl, mix together cake mix, eggs, oil, water and coconut flavoring. Beat for 2 minutes and pour into 9x13 inch pan.

Bake for 30 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the cake comes out clean.

In a medium bowl, combine coconut cream with sweetened condensed milk and stir until smooth.

Allow cake to cool completely. Poke holes into it in even rows using a large fork or chopsticks (larger holes work best). **Don't poke the holes through the cake or it will drain to the bottom of the pan! You want the cake to absorb all the liquid to be moist and yummy** Pour milk mixture over, allowing it to soak into the cake.

Refrigerate for several hours or overnight.

In a large bowl, whisk cream until soft peaks form. Add sugar and continue whipping until stiff. Spread over cooled cake. Sprinkle top with flaked coconut.
