Do I need 2 cans of coconut pecan frosting and 1 can of milk chocolate frosting or is it the other way around? I plan on making this cake for my husband's birthday as it is his favorite cake...

I made this cake last night in a 9 X 13 pan. I did't have any chocolate icing, or any XXXsugar to make any. I found a can of white frosting, and put it on the hot cake. I t didn't look good, so I found some chocolate syrup ans swirled it over the white frosting. It was so good!! We ate it warm.
