This is a cake my grandma use to make when I was younger. She would leave coconut off a portion of the cake for me. I don't know why they call it watergate cake.

We really loved this cake! I made it in a bundt pan and it was done in 45 minutes. I really wondered about the glaze and a frosting, but it works great. Everyone loved it! This one is a keeper! Thanks to Tarynne!
