German Chocolate Birthday Cake

IMG_1610 small

Birthdays are excellent excuses to make cake! For my birthday this year, I made a good ol’ chocolate cake with German Chocolate Cake Frosting in the middle and on top and regular chocolate frosting on the sides.

I found the recipe for the cake and frosting online – it’s from an old advertisement for Fry’s Cocoa (which is what I used). It’s called One Bowl Chocolate Cake.

The cake is good, but the real show-stopper is the German Chocolate Cake Frosting. It really doesn’t matter what the cake tastes like, because this frosting would make any cake taste amazing. The only change I made to the recipe is that I used walnuts instead of pecans.
