This is, of course, the best reason to eat German chocolate cake. A sweet, caramely mix of coconut and pecans that can make you forget there's a whole dessert underneath it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from I made this recipe for a cake that I made, I didn't use the recipe on Kraft for the cake. I made this recipe for a cake that I made, I didn't use the recipe on Kraft for the cake. It started off okay but went downhill pretty quick. I followed the directions and the exact measurements. I let the "icing" sit to thicken and it was SO runny. In addition it just wasn't sweet tasting like icing. I attempted to thicken it with powdered sugar but it just didn't do the trick. I had to add so much powdered sugar that it basically doubled the size of the icing... I could have iced a dozen cakes. But why would I want to? It tasted and looked terrible. I wouldn't suggest buying canned icing, just a different recipe from another website.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Whew! Whew! Ok...here goes. I had the same problem as the person that said the frosting was runny. I believe (after cooking it for an hour!) on an electric stove on 3, that it should be at least on a 4. I was very concerned about over heating the recipe and was very cautious. I believe that I will try this recipe again but start with a higher temperature. I did try a little trick-dissolving 1 teaspoon of cornstarch in 1 tablespoon of evaporated milk. I don't believe that had as much to do with thickening the recipe as turning up the heat did. I will try again and review again. Taste-delicious. Ease of recipe instructions...enh

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely Delicious! Always an excellent compliment to the Baker's German Chocolate Cake & yes, it is sweet! I usually make a double batch and keep it in the back of the fridge or freeze it to use later.

I made this frosting years ago to put on your Baker's sweet German chocolate cake, I had bought a box of the baker's chocolate squares and the recipe for both the cake and the frosting were on the box, I love German chocolate cake so I tried the recipe and I just loved it, especially the frosting, but somehow I lost the recipe and have been looking for it ever since, and now I have found it. Now I can make this delicious cake again, thank-you so much.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I have made this cake many, many times. I have made this cake many, many times. I have even sold it by the slice and by the cake to raise money for a political campaign that I worked on and yes, the candidate won the election! I made many desserts for that campaign but this was by far the favorite. This is an easy recipe to follow and gets rave reviews every time I serve it. The Coconut-Pecan Filing is delicious. I have used it to ice soft chocolate cookies as well. Thanks for this site!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I have had German Chocolate Cake for every Thanksgiving for as long as I have a memory. I have had German Chocolate Cake for every Thanksgiving for as long as I have a memory. My Mom always made this and it is my favorite cake of all time. The frosting is wonderful and if someone is having problems getting it thick enough they are undercooking it. I usually cook mine much longer than the 12 mins. stated...but I also double the recipe as we like it frosted on the outside as well and I have never had a problem with it not getting thick enough.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This icing is wonderful. This icing is wonderful. The key to making this icing thick and not runny is getting it to a boil and constantly stir for 12 minutes. You have to be careful not to have it to high or it will boil over. If it looks like it is about to boil over remove it from heat for a couple seconds, but keep stirring and then return it to heat. You will notice it getting thicker and thicker. After it cools, it will be awesome.

I made a German chocolate cake for my dad for Father's Day and I used this frosting recipe. The problem I have is that it too thick to spread on the cake. I also didn't have enough for a two layer 8 inch cake. I ended up having to go to the store and buying a can which was actually a lot easier to spread!
