Embracing Springtime with this Semi Naked Italian Cream Cake! Sweet, nutty, and decedent. Three light and fluffy layers that are filled to the brim with sweetened shredded coconut and chopped pecans, sandwiched between the very best cream cheese frosting. Every bite is sure to be just as good and sweet as the last. This cake is one of our absolute favorite Southern classics. It doesn't get better or easier than this!

This is my mom's absolute favorite cake. So, when I asked her what she wanted for her birthday cake, this was her immediate answer.

And there's no question as to why! This cake is SO good.
