All you folks who ended up with a soup are 'stirring' and not 'folding' in the cool whip. folding the ingredients in allows the cool whip to retain its fluff while stirring breaks it down and it becomes watery... Read More

This recipe does not deserve a rating. What a waste of ingredients and time. I also ended up with a soupy mess. Do not try this one you will be sorry. Read More

This was a most disappointing mess! I followed the recipe directions exactly and it was a total flop. It was much too thin to frost my layer cake--it ran off the cake as soon as I tried to frost it. However it did have one redeeming feature-- It did taste good. Read More

Wow. Wonderful recipe. I'm not sure what the negative reviews are about. I'm thinking that the reason the recipes didn't work out was because the baker used confectioners sugar instead of regular white granulated sugar. With the right kind of sugar (the white granulated) this recipe is the bomb. Read More

This turned out to be a delicious filling. I recommend using caster sugar though and putting in a bit more dessicated coconut to make the filling a little thicker. If you use whipped cream from the can then make sure you serve it immediately. Everybody loved it at home and in the office! The filling made a professional finishing touch to my coconut flavoured cake and it took very little effort! Read More

I was a little dubious about this recipe because of some of the negative reviews, but it sounded like it would taste good (and there were the equally enthusiastic reviews) so I decided to risk it. It worked quite well for me, but I think it is VERY IMPORTANT that the whipped topping is folded in carefully, not mixed in vigorously. I mixed together the sugar, sour cream and coconut, whipped it a bit with a hand mixer and then let it chill for an hour so before folding in the Cool Whip. After I frosted the cake (and I had quite a bit left over after frosting a 9 inch layer cake), I refrigerated it and half expected the icing to be falling off the cake next time I checked, but it was perfectly intact and remained so the next day as well. And it tastes delicious! Read More

First this frosting was FANTASTIC!! I changed it just a little. I made a wonderful Butter Cake--submitted by Carol. I put together about 2 cups of coconut the sour cream and used granulated sugar. I received one cup of it and mixed the one cup w/8 oz. of cool whip. The frosting w/out the coolwhip I used to frost my cake layers (I had made two 8-inch rounds and cut those into two so ended up w/four layers). It only took a thin layer. Then the frosting w/the coolwhip I used for the sides and top. I only used about 1/2 of the frosting. WOW!!! Between the butter cake and this frosting it was a 10! Thank you! My friends at work loved it and now everybody wants the recipe! Read More

I thought this was excellent made with granulated sugar. I loved and so did my family. Keep it in the refrigerator. Try it you'll like it. Read More
