German chocolate cake is usually chocolate cake with a caramel filling laced with nuts and coconut. Looking for a traditional recipe for a birthday party

This is not quite traditional, but close, and extremely delicious: http://www.bobbyflay.com...
I've made it several times (though never made the coconut whipped cream component) and it's always a big hit.

There's this german chocolate cupcake recipe you might be able to adjust to make a whole cake. http://www.food52.com/recipes...
And there are lots of chocolate cake recipes on the site:
Maybe use a cake recipe you like and make your own coconut pecan frosting to fill and ice it with?
interesting. I am a bit worried about the filling as its kind of a traditional thing. Making it for my father for his birthday, and don't want to disappoint!

Here is a recipe, I have used only the icing recipe and its very good. I use my own recipe for chocolate cake although this one sounds very good.
I made the filling from America's Test Kitchen via Leite's Culinaria and the cake from Rose's Heavenly Cakes. Here's the link to that combination, which was outstanding. http://marymaryculinary...
This one is REALLY amazing. One of my favorite cakes of all time.

I forgot about this - you recommended it to me last year and it is maybe the best cake I have ever made!
The cake is a recipe from German's Chocolate, which is now owned by Kraft. I just saw the chocolate on the supermarket shelf, and the Kraft website has the original recipe -- http://www.kraftrecipes.... It's so popular that there are many versions, as you see, but if you don't want to take chances, maybe you'd be best sticking with the source.
