German Chocolate Cake Frosting

While the cakes cooked, the Little Chefs made up the frosting. This was a different frosting then they had ever made before – it required cooking, whisking and adding other ingredients they were not used to in a regular cake frosting. They were not sure about it as they were adding in the ingredients, but in the end – they could not keep their fingers out of the mixing bowl!! They loved it!!
