Shirley's notes for this recipe:
My Daughter Belinda Hanger Past this Recipe on to me . My husband Loves this cake, with each taste he makes a sweet sound. with the frosting both in the cake batter and on the cake it stays so sweet and moist. best German Cake I have ever Made. Thank you Belinda

mix the cake just as you would on box , but add a full can of rich and creamy coconut pecan frosting right in the cake mix. this makes the cake rich and moist. bake as you would a normal cake but add 5 min. when done stick a knife in if it comes out clean it is done. now frost the middle with coconut pecan frosting and also frost the top with coconut pecan frosting but then frost the sides with milk chocolate frosting. this will be one of the easy moist cakes you will ever make.

Will try this for sure. I make this same cake in a pound cake pan with the icing inside cake. Dust with powder sugar.
