Directions:
Preheat oven to 350. Grease a 9 x 12 inch cake pan. Cover the bottom of the pan with the nuts and coconut. Pour the cake batter on top. In the microwave, melt the margarine in a bowl, add the cream cheese and confectioners' sugar, beat until smooth. Spoon over unbaked batter and bake (note: you cannot 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.
