Oh, the miracle of cake

For as far back as I can remember, German Chocolate Cake has been the birthday cake of choice for each and every person in our family.

My mom has probably been making this cake for 50 years. She started when she was 14, making it for Sunday dessert. When she was married, she scaled back to birthdays and special occasions. Once I left home, she was making it opnly when I visited, which was only about twice a year.

We'll now that my parents have a condo in Utah, my request is that each and every time she is here. I think she is up to about 8 times a year.

Nothing is more delicious than my Mom's German Chocolate Cake, now I know all of you don't like pecans and coconut, and I've heard...oh it is sooooo rich. ZIP IT! It is delicious and I have the final say!

p.s. if my three year old loves it, you know its amazing!!!
