I baked this cake years ago. It is simply delicious! It's great for a crowd. Here is how to make the icing: 1 stick of butter 3/4 cups sugar(regular) 1/2 cup evaporated milk 1 cup flaked coconut Boil sugar, butter and milk for 2 minutes. Add coconut. Spread icing on cake while icing and cake are hot. Enjoy!

This cake is fabulous! I made it as directed, including the butter glaze another reviewer mentioned (with the exception of the coconut, as I didn't have any on hand). My kids had 3 pieces each (normal limit is one, but this cake was so good, none of us could stop eating it), and my 5yo DD exclaimed, "This is the best cake I ever tasted!" This cake doesn't disappoint - plus, it's very easy. Definitely 5 stars!

Do not add too much of the liquid from the fruit cocktail - will make the cake too moist to cook thoroughly
