It was my sister, Angela's 21st birthday this week. She wanted a German chocolate cake. German chocolate is definitely one of my favorites, with its gooey caramel coconut pecan filling. I did 3 layers of rich chocolate cake inside, and put the traditional filling between the layers, but on the outside, I decided to decorate it "filling deconstructed." So, it is frosted with caramel Swiss buttercream, then I spread it with a caramel drizzle, added pecan halves around the bottom for a cute border, and shredded coconut on top. The filling soaks into the cake layers a little bit, so you get an incredibly moist, rich cake. So flavorful and delicious! Happy birthday, my dear little sister!
