My mother loved making this cake although she could not eat any of it because she is a Diabetic and cannot have anything sweet.

1 1/2 cups flaked coconut
1 cup chopped pecans
1 box German Chocolate Cake Mix
1 stick (8 tbsp./4 oz/1/2 cup/113g) margarine
1 lb. (16 ounces/453g) powdered sugar
1 (8oz/226g) package cream cheese, softened

Prehat oven to 350 degrees F (180 C). Grease and flour a 9 x 13-inch baking pan.

Sprinkle coconut and pecans over bottom of prepared baking pan. Prepare cake mix (but do not bake yet) according to directions on package and spread cake batter over coconut and pecans in baking pan. Melt margarine; add sugar and cream cheese. Mix well and spread over cake and spread as evenly as possible. Bake cake in preheated oven at 350 degrees F (180 C) for 45-50 minutes.
