How to Decorate A German Chocolate Cake

German Chocolate Cake is the decadent dessert for any special occasion. It is full of flavor.



The caramel.


The coconut.


The pecans.


Need I say more?

The only down side to a German Chocolate Cake is that the thick chunky icing doesn’t allow you to create the beautiful cake trends that you see online. I have come up with the solution for decorating a cake with chunky icing. My solution is very simple and anyone can do it. Have you ever made simple chocolate decorations? It is so easy.

Step 1: Pick a design for your chocolate and print it out. Google pipping designs and you will hit the mother load.

Step 2: Take design and place under wax or parchment paper. Make sure shiny side is up.

Step 3: Melt your chocolate pieces (the good baking kind). I find it easiest to melt the chocolate in in a microwave bowl stirring the chocolate after intervals of 30 seconds cooking in the microwave until you reach liquid state.

Step 4: Take melted chocolate either brush or pipe your design onto the parchment or wax paper.

Step 5: Let chocolate design set up. Should take about 2-3 minutes.

Step 6: Use angled spatula or another tool to remove designs from paper.

Step 7: Top cake with design by just placing or with a touch of icing.
