Me either KayDay!! lol And I really feel the people I'm making this for will be extremely PICKY!! I'm going to try mine using less coconut and maybe just a bit less pecans in it ... I'm also going to try adding the tub of icing like Misdawn suggested since it made her cake more dense... maybe the combination of the 2 will make it hold together better.. let me know what you try and how yours comes out!! I'm getting rather nervous about this one and hope mine won't crumble too bad!!

I have never heard of the tub of icing idea...but it sounds really yummy! I think you should go with the cream cheese icing. Let us know how it turns out...it sounds so good...I think I want to make a practice cake!!! icon_smile.gif

If you want a denser cake you could also try adding a box of pudding and/or an extra cake. I always adding pudding to my cakes. It makes them a little more dense and hardly any crumbs.

The Cake Mix Doctor has a cake receipt that calls for a tup of frosting in the cake mix. All I remember is that it was a chocolate cake. My friend's mother made it one night when I was over there and it was very good and moist. YUUMMMMMMY

Well, you may want to use a finer coconut, a more moist type that is shredded finer. What kind of coconut does your recipe call for? Also, if you grind up your pecans more, this helps a lot. When I make carrot cakes for weddings, I really chop the nuts fine by using a food processor so they are more ground than chopped. It make the cake easier to cut. I would have to agree with this type of cake that freezing really helps to set the crumb.
