    ForeverMama's Note:

    I used to make an Italian Cream Cake prior to making this particular recipe for many years that I swore was the best. Well I was wrong, because since I had the good luck in finding this recipe I've no longer gone back to the older cake recipe. Found it in "Taste of the South" magazine some 5 - 6 years ago. It's one of Trisha Yearwood's family recipes that was featured. I'm not even sure if she's given it in her cooking TV show. I've added a couple of little changes that I believe gave it a couple of extra points. But anyway, this cake is unsurpassed perfection on a plate and one I know I will treasure for many years.

      Awesome! I could eat the cake without the frosting, it was that good! This was the 2nd Italian Cream Cake that I have made, and this was a super star with the pecans and coconut in the cake batter. If only I could convince DH to make it for me for my birthday! Made for Photo Tag.
