This recipe was entered in The Foodista Best of Food Blogs Cookbook contest, a compilation of the world’s best food blogs which was published in Fall 2010.

Ingredients

1 boxed German chocolate cake mix (I use Betty Crocker)
FOR THE ICING:
1 1/2 cups sugar
5 egg yolks (beaten)
3/4 cup margarine
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla

Preparation

1
Boxed German Chocolate Cake Mix (I use Betty Crocker)
2
Here's the icing:
3
Oz. cans evaporated milk
4
Cups sugar
5
Egg yolks (beaten)
6
Cup margarine
7
Teaspoons vanilla
8
Cups flaked coconut
9
Cups chopped pecans
10
Combine evaporated milk, sugar, egg yolks, butter and vanilla in small saucepan. Cook and stir over medium heat until thick, about 12 minutes. Stir in coconut and pecans. Beat until thick enough to spread. Then place this mixture into the fridge and let it harden before attempting to spread it onto a completely cooled cake.

TIP - I have found that taking my metal cake spatula and freezing it helps the icing adhere to the cake, because it wants to stick to the warmest object.
