    This frosting came out great. However next time I will make the frosting before I make Mama's German Chocolate Cake, my cake cooled before the frosting was cool enough to apply to the cake.

    I love this cake. I make this cake every Thanksgiving, the cake is really moist and the frosting is so good I have to stop myself from eating it before I put it on the cake.

    This has got to be the best cake I've ever made! It's so moist, probably due to the buttermilk. The first time I made it though, there wasn't enough icing to cover the cake so now I always make a double batch of it! I recently brought it to a fund raising event & have been told that they need to come up with another reason for me to make it again. It was a big hit!

    This is the DEFINITIVE German Chocolate Cake Frosting. It has the perfect and most DELICIOUS richness and was very simple to make. The only thing I would change on the next time I make this frosting is to increase all the ingredients by 1/2 to have enough frosting for the cake sides. It was still VERY delicious even with just frosting between the cake layers. I would also suggest making the frosting while the cake is baking to synchronize the cooling times of the cake layers and frosting. By the time the frosting is made the cake should be ready to be taken from the oven. The layers rest in the pan for 15 minutes before they are removed and completely cooled on the wire racks, therefore making both perfect to assemble in a timely fashion.

    I made 1/4 of the frosting for a single 9 inch chocolate layer cake I had in the freezer. This frosting is yummy!
