German Chocolate Hennessey cake

Boy. Do I do "custom" cakes, or what? Even made up a new recipe to incorporate Hennessey cognac into a German Chocolate cake this time -- at the request of the birthday girl's friend. The traditional coconut pecan icing is pretty much impossible to decorate on top of, so this is what I came up with.

The foot cookie atop is some kind of an "inside joke," and all the sweets represent what is evidently a rather rampant sweet tooth on the part of the honoree.

While that lumpy drippy icing replete with coconut and toasted pecans is hardly the smooth finish of one of my fondant covered cakes, it surely is DELICIOUS. (Yes, I taste-tested it to make sure.)

We've got cake, cookie, frosting and candies all in one cake ... that combo surely should sufficiently feed even the world's biggest sweet tooth.
