I tried this cake today but haven't eaten it yet. Although, the cake looks fluffy and yummy. The icing problem was same for me, didn't thicken, buuuuuuttt I found a solution I bet no one would ever think of. I used instant potato flakes and added them in until the icing got thick enough for me. Then upon adding the coconut and pecans it got a perfect consistancy. BTW the instant potatoe flakes tend to pick up the flavor they go into so they do not taste like potato. Try it with stews and things you want thickened, it'll do it better than cornstarch, after all cornstarch tends to give a different taste and sometimes don't do the trick, as it did not to this icing.
