Beautiful no bake Cake: easy as 1-2-3

Want a  pretty 6 layer cake that is NO bake and beautiful????


Every year I usually bake one of my mom’s

favorite cakes from scratch……

This year there wasn’t time because of a series of events, so I used another one of her favorites.

OOps I mean…. I used 2 of her favorites… just to make it double delicious.

First you just take the cakes out of the box ….

Then stack them while they are STILL FROZEN.

I didn’t time it, so I can’t be exact, but I would give these about 4-5 hours to thaw out at room temp.

I stacked them together an hour before we left for dinner.

I pushed the frosting together where the cakes met… just before I walked out the door. You could also smooth out the frosting over the entire cake and add more coconut to the outside after it thaws…if you have time.


So there you have it, a square 6 layer Pepperidge Farm coconut cake..

 It looks amazing and tastes delish!

I actually think this cake could be used at a DIY wedding, shower or any special event….

especially if the people like coconut.

I’m a big believer in making things personal and using what people LOVE at events…

even if their fav is Hostess cupcakes or Oreo’s.

Remember the Oreo stacked cookie cake?

    This cake looks amazing! I love, love, love the pink depression glass cake stand it is sitting on. I’m sure your mom thought WOW when you presented it to her. I like the PF coconut cake, but never thought to stake two – great idea. Lovely photos.

    WOW!!! I had forgotten how much we used to love that Pepperidge Farm cake! What a fabulous idea….I do think I will have to use this sometime very soon!!! It’s so pretty as well…as is the cake stand! It reminds me of the one my mom has from my great grandmother….very special!
    Thanks for the tip…it will definitely be used!

    Thank each and every one of you sooo much for your sweet comments xo.
    My mom did love the cake and thought it looked very pretty! I almost used a different stand, but was delighted when I realized it fit perfectly on the square little pink one I had tucked away for such an occasion as this!! My mom is such a beautiful lady inside and out… I pray the Lord blesses her with many more birthdays… along with much happiness and joy. :)

    This is such a fantastic idea! My hubby and I actually ended up doing this for our wedding reception because I ran out of time to make the homemade petit fours that I have been planning on. I highly recommend icing the cakes while they are still cool to the touch so that you don’t have a globby icing mess (which yes, I can tell you from experience). Really though, this is a fantastic way to get a relatively modern-looking cake for little to no effort. You can wrap it with spring-y ribbon for an even more daring look. ; )

    This looks amazing…I can’t wait to try it! For some reason I always forget about those frozen cakes! Keep some in the freezer for those moments you need it in emergency!
