Snackshot Of The Day: German Chocolate Cake

The Daily Meal's editors, contributors, and readers dig into some pretty great restaurants, festivals, and meals. There's not always enough time to give a full review of a restaurant or describe in depth why a place, its food, and the people who prepare it are noteworthy, so Snackshot of the Day does what photographs do best, rely on the image to do most of the talking.

Today's Snackshot is of German chocolate cake. Despite its name, German chocolate cake is not actually German. The name comes from Sam German, an American who developed a type of dark baking chocolate. The cake is a layered chocolate cake with coconut and pecan frosting. Sometimes you'll find it garnished with maraschino cherries.
