I had never tried Italian Cream Cake until a lady in our church in Florida made one. Oh my goodness, it was absolutely delicious! For those of you who like to make your cakes from scratch, and you love coconut and pecans, this cake is heavenly!!! I've included the Cream Cheese Frosting recipe as well.
