cake mix, german chocolate & 3 cans of frosting

Directions Step-By-Step

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.

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.
