Laurie Osteen's Coconut Cake

['Nonstick vegetable oil spray', 'All-purpose flour (for pans)', '1 15 to 16-ounce box yellow cake mix', '4 large eggs', '1/2 cup vegetable oil', '1 cup plus 1 tablespoon whole milk', '2 cups unsweetened shredded coconut', '1 cup sugar', '1/2 cup sour cream', '1/2 teaspoons kosher salt', 'Three 8"-diameter cake pans']

Preheat oven to 350°F. Coat cake pans with nonstick spray. Dust with flour, tapping out excess.
Whisk cake mix, eggs, oil, and 1 cup milk in a large bowl until no lumps remain. Divide batter evenly among prepared pans; smooth tops.
Bake cakes until a tester inserted into the centers comes out clean, 10-15 minutes.
Meanwhile, mix coconut, sugar, sour cream, salt, and remaining 1 tablespoon milk in a medium bowl to combine; set frosting aside.
Transfer pans to wire racks; let cool 5 minutes. Turn cakes out onto racks and spread frosting over tops of warm cakes, dividing evenly. Stack cakes. Let stand at room temperature, covered with a cake dome, or loosely tented with foil, at least 4 hours before serving.
DO AHEAD: Cake can be made 2 days ahead. Store airtight at room temperature.
