My mother loves coconut cake, so I thought I would try this recipe since time was running low. I used white cake mix instead of yellow to make it look more what we are accustomed coconut cakes to look like. I also just used egg whites. I left out the nuts, but think next time I might try them. I used the coconut milk in place of the oil as others suggested, and put some in the frosting also. Well, it was a huge hit, everyone raved about it, and my mother was so pleased.

Actually didn't like the five flavors. Would have left out lemon and maybe coconut. The cake had a bit of a artificial flavoring with all the different clashing flavors. The texture was good. But the glaze would be better left off. It was just flavored sugar water and made the cake too sweet. Maybe if you add some milk to the glaze, it might help.
