Earthquake Cake

Earthquake Cake
Who says you can't bake on a boat?? No need to fret about how it rises or if the layers are even. Try this yummy Earthquake cake.
This is a most amazing cake. Chris' mother, Janette gave us this easy recipe after she made one for us. On a boat you might be concerned about baking since you can rock and roll from wakes or weather. No worries here...It's a crowd pleaser and is fun to share with guests. Make the cream cheese icing first and don't worry about the calories!

Preheat oven to 350 degrees

Cream Cheese Icing

1 Stick butter, 1 8oz. Pkg cream cheese, 1 tsp vanilla, 2 cups confectioners sugar. Blend all ingredients together until creamy. Set aside on counter. (You can cheat and use canned icing of almost any flavor too!)

Cake

Grease bottom only of 9x13 baking dish. Coat bottom of pan with shredded coconut. Sprinkle chopped pecans to cover most of coconut layer. Prepare German Chocolate cake from Box mix as directed. Pour cake mix in dish over coconut and pecans. Pour previously prepared icing onto cake mix. Swirl a toothpick through the icing to achieve a marbled look. Bake at 350 degrees for 40 minutes. Let cool on counter for 20 minutes or so and watch the earthquake happen!
