While living with my elderly grandparents, I tried my best to prepare things my grandfather would eat. Basically, he'd quit eating and just decided that he would give up on living. He loved sweet potatoes and I fixed them at least three times a week, trying out different ways to serve them. While rummaging through the cabinets, I came across a can of coconut pecan frosting usually used on a German Chocolate Cake. Since I didn't have a cake mix, I decided to try something a bit different. This is what the result was. Deeelish...and elegant enough for the fanciest dinner party or simple enough for Sunday dinner.
