This was very good and easy to make. It was a nice change to the usual dessert cakes. Very light and refreshing. I served it with a little vanilla ice cream. Thanks for posting it!!!!

This was something really eye-catching, I was attracted to it's name and tried it today. I added 2 tsps. mango essence, 3/4 tsp. pineapple essence and 1 tsp. banana essence also in addition to the other listed ingredients. Its - A REAL NICE CAKE WITH AN EVEN LOVELIER NAME:) It tastes equally as good as it sounds and has been fun making it. Thank You for sharing it:)

Thank you so much for posting this recipe. I had been looking for it. This was the first cake that I had ever baked and I baked one this one a lot when I was a teenager because it was so easy and everyone loved it. Mom lost the recipe, so thank you so much for posting.

My DH thanks you a bunch, Mirj. This is a cake his Mother made him...uhmmmm...shall we say many, many years ago. She passed away and I didn't get the recipe from her. The cake is very moist, and very easy to make. I thank you, 'cause I finally made DH smile and was able to serve up lots of memories. Very good. Thanks for sharing.

Easy, and you do have everything you need in the cupboard. A bit too wet of a consistancy for us, and very, very sweet.

I thought this was just ok while hubby liked it. It was easy to make and nice and moist but just nothing great. It's worth making because it is good, I just probably won't make it again.

A wonderful recipe Mirj. Tastes better the next day once the cake absorbs the icing. Very easy to make! This will be a regular at home! Thanks a lot!

Loved the name of the cake and there is always a can of Fruit Cocktail lurking in the pantry. However, this didn't make quite a hit in my household. Had cut back on sugar in cake part and butter in icing; the cake was still very moist and sweet.

Wonderful, wonderful! I have made this for years for my children. My fruit cocktail was 15 oz. and I used evaporated milk in the icing. My son and I like this cake best out of the refrigerator. Quick and easy and delicious!
