If you want a cake that is easy to make, freezes beautifully, tastes delicious, and is a guranteed crowd pleaser, look no further than this coconut bundt cake with lime glaze. The flavors of sweet coconut and tart lime are a match made in bundt cake heaven!

Easy to make. The cake mix makes this super easy to make with just a few additional ingredients to make the cake taste “from scratch.” The best part is the easy to make, easy to pour yummy glaze~SO much easier than frosting layers!

Freezes beautifully: This cake freezes like a charm. Simply place it inside a freezer ziploc (the 2 gallon size works best), remove as much air as possible, and date/label the bag. The cake will be good for up to 2 months. When ready to serve, allow to thaw at room temp for 2-3 hours. Note:

Moist & delicious: The cake gets a moist, dense crumb from the eggs & sour cream. The tart lime is the perfect balance to the sweet coconut flavor from the mix.

Guaranteed crowd pleaser. I made this cake for our young marrieds’ small group recently It was completely devoured, and there were myriad comments about how yummy it was.

Coconut supreme cake mix: There are no stores in Birmingham that stock this Duncan Hines coconut supreme cake mix, so I ordered a bundle of 3 boxes from amazon.Duncan Hines SIgnature Deliciously Moist Coconut Supreme Cake Mix, 16.5 oz (3 Pack).

After trying and loving this cake, I asked my local Publix to order the mix for me. I just got word yesterday that my case has arrived (12 boxes of mix)~so I’ll be freezing this to have when needed. If any of you Birmingham friends want a box, I’m happy to share. Just shoot me a text and I’ll save you a box!

For all non-Birmingham savvys, I’d definitely ask your local grocery store if they will order for you. Feel free to leave comments below if you’ve seen it in stores near you.

I hope to hear from any of you who make this cake. It really is a unique and yummy dessert. As always, thanks so much for stopping by. Be blessed, and stay savvy!!!
