German's Sweet Chocolate Cake

I had never made a German Chocolate Cake, or as it's called in the linked recipe, German's Sweet Chocolate Cake. So after a funny exchange with my Tia about what to make for Memorial Day, I decided to make one for that holiday's dessert.

I don't have three 9-inch round cake pans, so I did two layers and had a lot of frosting leftovers as a consequence. Still, it looked and tasted like classic German Chocolate Cake (I should have taken a better side picture to show the filling between the layers.) The gooey frosting was a perfect match to the sweet and light chocolate cake.

Pat the Bunny

A few weeks ago, this guy was in my backyard. You can tell it's May because of the beautiful purple and white wildflowers that bloom around my house during that month.

More recently, I've seen two or three munching on the lawn at one time. This pair didn't seem to care that I was walking through their breakfast spot and just kept eating the grass as I passed them.
