But with perhaps a little
That's right! He baked, layered, frosted, and finished a German Chocolate Cake all on his own.
Tell me that's not precious? Being such a food fanatic, I think a birthday cake is about the sweetest thing Bryan could have done for me. Now I just have to stare at it sitting on the counter until after dinner... I'm just not promising I won't swipe some frosting from the sides when nobody is looking.
German Chocolate Cake á la Bryan
1 box chocolate cake, prepared according to package directions
2 cans sweetened condensed milk
6 Tbsp. butter
2 egg yolks
3/4 cup sweetened coconut
2/3 cup chopped pecans
2 tsp. pure vanilla extract
Allow cake to cool completely before removing from pan. For frosting, combine sweetened condensed milk, butter, and egg yolks in a medium saucepan. Stir continually over medium-low heat until thickened, about 6 minutes (I recommend using a rubber spatula to avoid sticking and burning on the sides and bottom). Add pecans, coconut, and vanilla and mix well. Use an offset spatula to spread the frosting between layers and around the outside of cake.
