I've always been a fan of the Food Network TV Show Sweet Dreams by Gale Gand. Once, she featured the German Chocolate Cake and i've never forgotten it ever since. The cake is made of dark moist chocolate cake with coconut, topped with caramelized pecan or almonds. I guess i'm one of the few people who like coconut on their cake.

The idea of coconut, caramel and chocolate combined is genius! Three years ago, while having a flavor dilemma at Baskin-Robbins, i stumbled upon a German Chocolate Cake-flavored ice cream and it instantly won me over. The description reads:

Swiss Chocolate ice cream with coconut, walnut pieces, milk chocolate brownie bits and a caramel ribbon created in 1965. Available in the Midwest, Southwest, South, West and Northwest.

My mom recently got in touch with her acquaintance who used to own a bakeshop here in our town. She's been in business for more than a decade and she actually baked my sister Ela's 1st birthday cake. After all those years of ordering cakes from her, why didn't I ever asked her? She said German chocolate is very hard to acquire so she'll use a different chocolate ingredient.


Packing on the pounds this semestral break :p
