I made this for my husband's birthday... I was a bit nervous because I had never made a cake completely from scratch. But I just followed all of the directions to a T, with the exception of two things: I doubled the coconut in the frosting. I also doubled the butter to make it super rich, and came out fantastic. I covered the sides with chocolate frosting, and put decorative frosting around the edge and voila! Came out beautifully, and everyone loveeeeeeeed it. They couldn't stop telling me how good it was. Next time I might put a little less butter but I liked the consistency it had, as I've always liked german chocolate cake very rich.
Anyway, I will make again
