Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is our favorite family special occasion cake. This is our favorite family special occasion cake. It has been around for a long time, My mother made it the first time in 1961,for my 14th. birthday party. Mom is no longer with us, but I carry on the tradition. The only way we have ever made it with a devils food cake with seven minute frosting or seafoam frosting, decorated with M7M's and licorice whip for antenna with a browm M&M on the butt and a few trailing behind.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Made this for my daughters Birthday Sleepover. Made this for my daughters Birthday Sleepover. Came out good, with no issues. Only that my daughter does not like Coconut so I did not use. Just dyed the coolwhip and sprinkled with hearts and used shortbread mini cookies covered with chocolate. Also used chocolate for the antennas. Great recipe!!!
