Rave Reviews (Vanilla Coconut) cake – BEST CAKE EVER!!!
Ok, I’m not that much into chocolate.  But once, when I was going to make chocolate cupcakes for a party, several people requested this recipe instead…  So it’s not just me.  I do think the pudding probably helps make this recipe very moist.

(Note: for some reason this photo shows up correctly on my computer, but upside down on my phone…) So to repent for carbo loadin [...]
