End of Summer Dessert

Please excuse this horrible picture. I thought
about taking a photo of this dessert in the car and I was without
my camera. So my husband took this picture
with his iPhone.

I don't have a name for this dessert dish because
I kinda just made it up. It was fabulous but I want to make some
changes on it for the next one.
So for now it's called Carrot Surprise
1 Box Carrot Cake mix
3 eggs
1/3 cup vegetable oil
1/3 cup water
1/2 cup applesauce
1/4 cup walnuts
1 container fluffy white cake frosting
1 box instant french vanilla pudding
1 3/4 cup milk
1 20oz canned chunk pineapple-drained
1 1/2 large bananas
shredded coconut
canned whipped cream
2 9"round cake pans

Preheat oven to box directions. Prepare cake mix with eggs, applesauce, oil, nuts and water. Follow box directions on mixing/beating. Bake according to directions on box. Remove cakes when toothpick inserted comes clean. Let cool and remove 1 cake into large serving dish with high sides to allow for pudding. Reserve the other cake to eat.
Frost cake with half of white frosting. You can omit frosting if you like, I did it so the cake wouldn't get mushy since we were not going to be eating it immediately. Prepare pudding with milk ( 1 3/4 cup milk makes the pudding custard thickness). Allow pudding to thicken while stirring with a wire whisk. Pour over cake.
Cut bananas into small slices and place around pudding and on top. Place pineapple that was previously drained around pudding on the edging of the bowl. Sprinkle with coconut to your liking.
Chill at least 30 minutes to let set.
Cut and serve and top with whipped cream.
