Ok, so I cheated and used a mix for the cake! This review is for the icing. It is absolutely, incredibly delicious, and I am not a big fan of German chocolate! Everyone absolutely loves it. I use the suggestion in the reviews to lightly toast the coconut and pecans - it makes a huge difference. You can smell the icing. It tastes like pecan pie. It's hard to tell if it's done or not, when it seems like it isn't going to thicken up anymore I take it off the heat and it comes out great. You can do extra pecans or extra coconut, it turns out fine. I put it on cupcakes so I worried about having gooey icing running all over the place but it isn't a problem! It comes out so sticky that you just kinda pile a scoop on top and shape it down and it just sticks in place. But I cook mine a long time, maybe 15-20 minutes, so if you like thinner icing you could do it that way too. I'm glad I tried this. I would recommend it to anyone. It is very easy as long as you never stop stirring and don't turn the heat up too high. Thanks for this recipe!!
