The first year I was dating my husband he decided to make me a birthday cake for my birthday. It was a very sweet thing to undertake, considering my favorite cake is German Chocolate (not an easy cake to make) and he had my kids underfoot while he sent me on errands to surprise me with the cake. I guess everything went pretty well, until he got a little behind schedule. I came home sooner than he thought so he sent me off the grocery store for "one more thing he had to have" and he frosted the hot cake. Of course, the icing began to melt so he stuffed it all into the freezer to cool. When I pulled into the driveway, he quickly pulled the cake from the freezer wanting it on the table when I walked through the door, only to have the cake do a back flip and land frosting-side-down on the floor. I walked into a big chocolate and coconut mess in the middle of the kitchen! I was surprised all right.
In other years, my husband did deliver a German Chocolate cake. And, almost every year we relive the saga of the first birthday cake!
Come to find out, my dad's favorite cake is also German Chocolate. We enjoyed it in June for his birthday. I was really craving it again, but a whole cake is a lot and then I found this recipe on Pinterest from bake or break. Wow, these are soooo good (I can't add enough oooos on the so). I served this at family dinner and I shared a plate with the neighbors, there were none to take to work the next day.
A couple days later my dad informed me I could make those German Chocolate bars again, any time and as often as I wanted. They were a favorite. My neighbor's husband also said they were a big hit. I'm not naming any names, but SOMEone ate so many I went to bed with a stomach ache...it was worth it.
