“Happy Birthday to me! Happy Birthday to Me! Happy Birthday to ME! Happy Birthday to MEEEEE!” It’s my birthday today!
My sweet husband made me my favorite birthday cake: German Chocolate! Now, I have very strict standards for my cake… Don’t mess it up with chocolate frosting or ganache or any other thing! It’s supposed to be German Chocolate cake layers with Coconut Pecan filling in between the layers and on top. That’s it. Poor guy once tried to gourmet-it-up for me. I appreciated the effort–and it was delicious–but I made it clear that, for me, there is no fancying up this cake! The photo above was so beautiful, I had to grab it but here’s a recipe from my awesome baker cousin! (Ignore the frosting on his cake. He now knows it is wrong–LOL!)
