German Chocolate Cupcakes

I decided to make Martha Stewart's German Chocolate cupcakes for my dad's birthday last week.  This is hands down his favorite cake.  Last year I made him a three layered German Chocolate cake from scratch.  It was my first time ever making a layered cake and I've got to say, it was quite fun!  I went to go find a link to the cake on my blog and realized that was one recipe I never found time to blog (how lame).  Here is a picture I found to give you and idea of what I made:

(next time I'll try to get a picture with a slice missing that way you can see all of the layers)

These cupcakes were fairly simple to make and tasted d.e.l.i.c.i.o.u.s.  Everyone in my family who tried them thought they were pretty good (at least, that's what they told me!).  I love how they look like a mini two-layered cake. 

If you like coconut and pecans - you seriously need to give this recipe a try.  Your tummy will thank you for it.

The recipe can be found on the Martha Stewart website here.

Happy cupcake baking, photographing, blogging, and eating (the best part)!


  1. those look scrumptous! and they DO look like mini layered cute!

  2. Those cupcakes are just adorable! I was browsing that cookbook last night and I gave the very same cupcakes a looong pause . . . but then I decided that they'd would just fall apart on me. I love seeing your lovely, finished product. It's such a wonderful motivation to try the recipe.

  3. @Caceres - I'll bring you one tonight.. :)

    @Jessica - You should totally try it! They are really quite easy and really yummy. If you decide to make them please do let me know what you think! Happy Friday!
