For my dad's birthday he requested a german chocolate cake. I haven't made one from scratch before so I searched for a recipe that I thought looked the best and sounded the best and found this one and went with it. The end result was fantastic! We were in MI so I didn't have any of my baking supplies, but in a pinch if you need to pipe something just put the frosting in a big baggie and snip the corner off a little bit. Worked like a charm.
Happy Birthday Dad! Hope you enjoyed the cake!
