There is nothing particularly special about this cake.
…except for the 3-D solid chocolate yacht!
I’m working on my 3-D chocolate skills. First, I made the sail out of white chocolate with a dark chocolate rectangular base. Next, I made and origami parchment paper boat and filled it with chocolate. The hard part was figuring out a way to stand the sail up in the boat as the chocolate was setting without it going crooked or falling over. The result was a solid chocolate ship sailing a sea of german chocolate cake filling, which is a wonderful image for a German Chocolate Cake lover and boat enthusiast.
