"Very good and moist cake, will definitely make again. The cake received rave reviews at our church supper. I did make a different icing due to my lack of dream whip. I mixed 1 cup of milk with 1 pkg of pudding mix, then folded in 8oz of frozen/thawed whipped topping. After icing cake I sprinkling top with coconut and pecans."

"I made this cake today for a St Patty day potluck. Everyone just loves it. Several women called it Watergate Cake for some reason, thats what their moms called it. It is always a hit whenever it shows up at a potluck."
