When I was a child German chocolate cake was my favorite cake. When Baskin Robbins first opened in a neighboring town, I was so excited that they had an ice cream flavor called German chocolate cake that was light chocolate ice cream filled with dark chewy chocolate chunks, lots of pecans, and shreds of coconut. I loved that ice cream so much, so when I found this awesome German chocolate cupcake recipe by Preppy Kitchen, on YouTube, I had to make these delicious-looking cupcakes as soon as possible.
