How to Decorate A German Chocolate Cake

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

Chocolate.

Classic.

The caramel.

Yum!

The coconut.

Yum!

The pecans.

YUMMY!

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.
