DIRECTIONS

  • 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.
  • Remove from heat and add pecans and coconut, then immediately pour hot mixture over cake (cooled or uncooled).
  • 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 (Recipe #7061)!
