I am a professional baker and always follow a recipe as written the first time I bake it, and when I review it. I set timer for 20 minutes, and cake was burnt. My fault for not checking, but I have never cooked a cake that fast! So, I tried again, cake came out ok. I did 2 batches of the icing, the first I must have cooked for 45 minutes and it never got thick. I took it off the heat and it thickened enough to use. The second I upped the heat to medium low, and cooked longer, still never got thick. I made this for a friend, I am not a german chocolate fan. The cake was very light and had good texture, but was a bit dry even though not over cooked. The frosting was thin but had good flavor and soaked into the cake a bit to help with moisture. It definitely needs tweaking, so if you are going to make, use some of the advice given! It is close, but impo not there yet.
