    GrandmaIsCooking's Note:

    I made only a couple changes to this recipe I adopted from the RecipeZaar account in February 2005. I increased the butter from 3/4 to 1 cup, changed the milk from canned evaporated milk (which I am not terribly fond of) to regular whole milk, and decreased the amount of milk from 1 cup to 3/4 cup (the additional 1/4 cup butter makes up the difference). This delicious topping is the perfect topping for Fruit Cocktail Cake.

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Mix sugar, butter, and milk in a heavy saucepan (2 quarts or larger) and bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring constantly, then boil for 5 minutes while you continue to stir.
    2. 2
      Remove from heat and add pecans and coconut, then immediately pour hot mixture over cake (cooled or uncooled).
    3. 3
      Note: frosting will be thin, so the liquid can be absorbed by the cake; only the coconut and a thin glaze will be left on top of the cake; the rest will soak into the cake--This is the only frosting you will want to use over Fruit Cocktail Cake (Fruit Cocktail Cake)!

      This icing was great. Really saved the cake, which was almost a flop. I used fat free evaporated milk since I don't keep whole on hand. Worked beautifully.

      This is a must for the Fruit Cocktail Cake, but I am going to make sure to use it on some of the other sheet cakes I make. I think it would give a nice rich chocolate cake a German Chocolate look and taste.
