Coconut-Pecan Icing and German Chocolate Cake

Hello, everyone! Want to try this Coconut-Pecan Icing and German Chocolate Cake for dessert? “Ja!” *silence* Uhm, just a little correction here: German Chocolate cake is not German and… from Germany, of course. German Chocolate Cake is named after an American, Sam German, who developed a sweet baking chocolate for Baker's Chocolate Company in 1852. So in other words, German Chocolate Cake is American, ok? Good. Well, since I begin with a little info about German Chocolate Cakes and the man behind it, I think it is best to introduce also the person behind Coconut-Pecan Icing and German Chocolate Cake. So, before we fill our stomachs with this dessert, let shake hands first with the cook who made this dessert possible. *winks*
