What if you do not have a broiler?

The topping for this cake is rather thick. It could be spread on top of the cake without broiling since it is just melted butter, coconut and pecans. Heating the topping under the broiler helps to soften and brown the topping slightly. But, if you can spread the frosting on the top of the cake it is just fine to do that.
