    In large bowl, beat cake mix, remaining coconut milk (1 1/3 cups), the water and egg whites with electric mixer on low speed 30 seconds, then on medium speed 2 minutes, scraping bowl occasionally. Stir in 1/2 cup of the coconut until well combined. Pour into pan.

    Meanwhile, in 2-quart bowl, microwave vanilla baking chips uncovered on High about 30 seconds or until melted. Stir; if chips are not completely melted, microwave 15 seconds longer, then stir until all chips are melted. Stir in powdered sugar, butter, reserved 1/3 cup coconut milk and the vanilla. Cover; refrigerate 30 to 60 minutes. (If frosting becomes too firm to spread, microwave uncovered on High 10 to 15 seconds to soften; stir until smooth.)

    Spread frosting over cake. Immediately sprinkle top with 1/4 cup coconut. Store loosely covered.

Expert Tips

  • Don't waste those egg yolks! Place them in a small container, adding enough water to cover yolks completely (to prevent drying). Cover tightly and refrigerate up to 24 hours. Drain water before using.
  • Shredded coconut can be used instead of flaked.
