Hey @sgdemeo get a load of this. Quick intro, as I was asked for the formulas: cake batter, buttercream, coconut filling. German chocolate cake is not ethnic, it’s Texan. In fact, Mr. German’s first name was Sam. Sounds like a great guy. If he were left-handed, he’d hit the trifecta.
My piping skills are out of practice. I’ve always been iffy on fine decoration. Amiris you made me work for this one lol. This is why I avoid multi-component desserts, unless people explicitly ask for the recipe. I’m exhausted from editing, so if you intend to make it, drop a comment if any questions or clarity needed. I’m sure I missed something somewhere. At the very least, I can vouch for the numbers.
