So I made it a day early...
The cake batter
Stiff peaked egg whites
Folding egg whites into cake batter
Cooled German chocolate cake rounds
Coconut pecan frosting, cooling to room temp (I also placed it in the refrigerator to allow it to fully thicken.)
The masterpiece! Not bad at all for my first of many German Chocolate Cakes!!! My grandmother has made these for the family birthday's for years - but...since I now live 8 hours from home, mine will have to be second best.
