Directions:
Prepare cake batter according to direction. Preheat oven to 350 F. Grease 9 x 13 pan. Cover the bottom of the pan with nuts and coconut. Pour cake batter on top. Melt margarine. Add cream cheese and powdered sugar. Stir to blend. Spoon over unbaked batter and bake for 40-42 minutes. You can't test for doneness with this sticky cake. The icing sinks to the bottom while baking and makes a gooey white ribbon throughout.
