German Chocolate Cake

This cake is really delicious, i get to taste it this time. It was requested as a dessert for our Christmas Eve Dinner and i was glad that i had a can of ducle de leche in the fridge. The cake was easy to make and assembling it was fast especially you do not have to make the ducle de leche.

The 3 layers of cake were much thinner.

I used Dessicated coconut instead of flaked and it was so much easier to work with. Using 2 pieces of greased paper, i rolled the filling inbetween into a disk to fit the cake.

Trimming the edges or rim of cake evenly, i was able to use as little of the ganache as possible and leave enough to pour over cake.

Leave iced cake with the ganache to cool in fridge until harden

Heat the remaining frosting until pouring consistency.

Great job, Lily! I am still unable to summon the courage to slice my cakes into 3 slices, let alone 4 like yours :)

dulce de leche is caramelized sweetened condensed milk. Nestle has it on the market as it is a south american delicacy.

leche in spanish is milk, to me leche is like in malay leceh, banyak kerja
