German Chocolate Cake II

Reviewed: Sep. 17, 2001
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.
