German Chocolate Yummyness is what this is. I have never actually made or eaten homemade from scratch German Chocolate cake and for some reason I keep hearing how good it is from different people.
So when my friend asked me to make her husband a German Chocolate Cake for his birthday, I was excited!
I was happy to try a new recipe and see what everyone was talking about.
When I was a kid I remember eating German chocolate cake from the box and a premade frosting out of the container. My mom used to make it this way, and so did my grandmother. Who knew you could make all this from scratch?? Can I just say, making this cake from scratch, with all natural, all fresh and organic ingredients ups the level of goodness by tenfold! It is amazing even if I do say so myself!
I made it extra tall, with five layers of cake and gooey coconut and toasted pecan filling. For the sides I used a chocolate buttercream.
For our family we made a smaller version with no nuts or coconut (because my sweet littlest daughter despises both of them) but I added them to the top of mine and my husband's. My 5 year old had fun decorating it just like Mommy! I was quite impressed!
I love comments and followers! Have a great weekend!
