It's a little late, but the 8th was my niece's dedication and my brother-in-law's birthday. We had a family BBQ and I made German chocolate cake. It's really yummy and fairly easy (Or maybe that's because I make it a lot.)
Also, here is the cake the first time I ever made it.
I based it off of this cake but I tweaked it a bit. Also, instead of adding shredded coconut to the frosting, I added shaved coconut from Whole Foods.
