Should have taken the other review advice. Bought frosting for this after the recipe flopped. Cake was ok I guess, just know before hand that you will need to buy the frosting.

The cake is time consuming to make. I had the same problem with the icing not thickening. I finally took it off the heat, added lots more coconut then called for and put it in the fridge for a while. At that point though I still went out and bought some frosting because I didn't have enough to cover all the layers and the top and sides of the cake. Next time I think I will do it Betty Crocker's way!

i have to agree with scarlett1 on this. the frosting never thickened! i cooked it for 30 minutes and then just figured it might thicken when cooled. it didn't. it was very disappointing.

I made this cake for my best friend's birthday party (which I was hostessing). The icing directions say "until the mixure thickens." THICKENS TO WHAT CONSISTENCY?? DOES THAT MEAN I COOK IT 4 MINUTES OR 15 MINUTES?" I'm sure that's why the other reviewer's icing didn't solidify. Thickens like pudding? Thickens like glue? Who knows?? The author of this recipe might want to include the number of minutes neccessary to acheive this "Thick"ness. Also, a double boiler?????????? I don't know anyone that even OWNS a double boiler, other than my grandmother. Needless to say, my friend did not have a birthday cake for her birthday. Thanks.

I totally agree! This is the best "German Chocolate Cake" recipe I have found. It does take some extra time but it is WELL worth your effort. It comes out light and fluffy and moist and the frosting is perfect.

I found this to be a very moist cake although I followed the recipe for the icing exactly but the icing never thickened up so the icing mostly ran off of the cake.
