“Mrs. Wagner is a lovely lady who raised five children. Back in the 60’s she always had this cake in her kitchen because her husband loved it - I have fond memories of always getting a piece of chocolate cake when ever I went to her house. This cake is a deep, dark, chocolate cake and she always frosted it with homemade white frosting and finished it off with sweetened flake coconut – delicious!”
