Steve's Dad Dean had his birthday on Saturday and we all got together for Sunday dinner to celebrate. I was assigned the birthday cake - German Chocolate to be exact. My mom's recipe for the topping is the BEST! It was a triple layer cake.
GERMAN CHOCOLATE CAKE FROSTING
Topping for two 9-inch Chocolate cakes
2 c. evaporated milk
2 c. sugar
6 egg yolks slightly beaten
2 sticks butter
2 tsp. vanilla

Mix milk, sugar, eggs, and butter in large saucepan. Stir and bring to boil for a few minutes until it thickens. Remove from heat. Add vanilla, coconut & walnuts. Let cool, chill in refrigerator before frosting.
