Coconut Lopez Cake

Strange scenario: I scored Los Angeles Dodgers Luxury Suite passes for a game last Friday. One of the many delicious amenities was a dessert cart that stopped by every suite which offered a rich selection of cakes and cookies. Passing on the S'mores cake, carrot cake etc , I decided to go with a luscious never heard of before Coconut Lopez Cake. I was so happy with my selection and now I can't get the damn thing out of my head. This cake in particular had an incredibly moist yellow cake base (soaked Tres Leches-style with Coconut Lopez cream of coconut), a dense (not too sweet) coconut filling, a thin layer of pineapple and of course frosted in coconut frosting and coconut flakes. I'm not a coconut fanatic, nor is cake a regular dessert choice of mine, but this was one cake that surprised me and I'd love to find out where to find it. I should have asked the suite attendants where Dodger stadium orders them from...but since I didn't, does anyone know where in Los Angeles makes the best Coconut Lopez Cake? I've perused the internet for information, but all I seem to find are recipes. Someday when I become a better (or rather more patient) baker, I'll brave the recipe. Until then...any thoughts?

      Thank you for the links, Grey! The label on the cake that I was served said "Coconut" but when I went to do a search, I found many "Coco" Lopez titles amongst the Coconut ones. Thanks again for clearing that up for me, maybe now I'll have better luck with my search.
