    Sackville's Note:

    A great recipe for kids and adults who are really kids at heart! So easy to make. I got this recipe from my German friend Katja, who often brought it to a class we took together and made my lunch breaks very tasty indeed. I think you could sub shortening or butter for the coconut fat (Palmin) she used but I have not tried it, having only made this while in Germany.

      The cake is called " kalte Schnauze" ( cold muzzle)or "kalter Hund" (cold dog) depending on the area you live in. It is a kids birthday party favorite( at least for the now 40 and older crowd :) Then you would of course omit the rum!!! Oh, the recipe brings back so many german childhood memories. Guten Apettit!
