7
Chantilly Frosting:
8
Combine milk, sugar, butter, egg yolks and vanilla.
Cook stirring constantly over medium heat for 12 minutes or untl mixture thickens. ( make sure that it is thick or it will slice right off your cake!)
Add vanilla and chill one hour covered with a piece of plastic wrap directly over surface for proper spreading consistancy.
9
Frost cake and sprinkle with the toasted pecan pieces and chill for 2 hours.

NOTE:
For a short cut to making this delicious cake you can use German chocolate cake mix and instant vanilla pudding and follow their directions per box.
BUT I always make the Chantilly frosting from scratch and follow all the instructions for putting it together.. But for special occasions I think it is great to do ALL from scratch.
