1 box German chocolate cake mix, batter prepared according to package directions
1/2 cup margarine
8 ounces cream cheese, softened
1 (16 ounce) box confectioners' sugar
Heat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a 13 x 9-inch cake pan.
Cover the bottom of the pan with the nuts and coconut.
Pour the prepared cake batter on top.
Melt the margarine.
Add cream cheese and confectioners' sugar; stir to blend. Spoon over
Bake for 40 to 42 minutes. You will not be able to test for doneness with
a cake tester as the cake will appear sticky even when it is done. The icing
sinks into the batter as it bakes, forming the white ribbon inside.
