The Ugliest Cake in the World

A couple weeks ago was my mom's birthday and I decided to make her German Chocolate Cake because it is her very favorite. The problem was that she can't eat nuts and coconut right now.....so I had to make the frosting without nuts or coconut....and that didn't turn out so successfully.

In fact....

I made what had to be officially "The Ugliest Cake in the World".


As you can see the top layer cracked in half.
Never a good sign.
Also the sides of the cake are all fishnagled.
Normally this could all be covered up by frosting and no one would be the wiser.
But not with my coconut/nut free frosting. Oh no. It left all the terrible flaws out in plain site.
The one saving grace? It was absolutely delicious!
