Sour Cream Coconut Cake

Don't you love cool, refrigerated cakes during the hot, summer days? How about one with moist layers of white cake iced with a delicious coconut-sour cream icing?  I adapted a few different recipes to make one that I adore.  We all have signature homemade birthday cakes in my family and this one is mine.  I turned 55 this past week and my sweet hubby made this cake for my birthday party.  Let's whip up this easy, scrumptious cake!
The Starting Line-Up:
1- box white cake mix (prepared as per box directions)
16 ounces of sour cream (regular or low fat)
1 large tub of Cool Whip
1 and 1/2 cups of sugar
1- 14 ounce bag of coconut (save a little to sprinkle on the top)

Make cake in two round cake pans  according to the directions on the box.  Cool and split the layers.  In a large bowl, stir together the sour cream, sugar, and about 3/4th's of the bag of coconut.  Fold in Cool Whip. Taste the icing.  If you want more coconut, add a little more.  You can add more or less depending on your love of coconut!  Generously spread icing between the layers, sides and top of the cake.  If desired, sprinkle the top with the remaining coconut.  Cover tightly and refrigerate. Serve cold.  This cake can be made several days before serving.  It gets yummier the more it sits. If you like coconut, you are going to love this!
