German Flag Cake

I made this cake for my dear friend Erika and her husband David. David is in the military and they are moving to Germany as part of his service. We will miss them terribly. Since we met they have been in California, Guam, Italy, back to California and now Germany. They are globe trotters for sure and we wish them all the best in the world and really hope to visit them in Germany while they are there.
Let me preface these photos by saying...these are not stylized shots and they aint pretty. What I do love about them is the patiently waiting childrens hands in the photo before the cake was cut. Simple cake to make, you just have to be patient making three seperate layers of cake (unless you use a mix, which I did not) - I made a layer of each; basic yellow cake, red velvet and chocolate fudge. The yellow didn't rise to the occasion like the other layers, but it is home made and imperfections make it all the better if you ask me.
The chocolate frosting was the best I have ever made, simple and so delicious!
Here is the recipe...

  • 1.5 (3/4 Cup) sticks of Butter (softened)

  • 10 Tbls Evaporated Milk

  • 2 Tbls Vanilla

  • 1 Cup Unsweetend Cocoa Powder

  • 6 Cups Powdered Sugar

Sift sugar and cocoa together and set aside.
Beat sugar until fluffy and slowly add dry mixture alternating with milk until well blended. Add vanilla and beat together one more time.
