I love German chocolate cake, but I know people who are allergic to coconut.
Can I recreate the caramel and evaporated milk frosting without coconut? Will the layered cake still hold up?

Lauren, the filling would still be delicious without coconut, but we would recommend making a little more of it (perhaps 50% more) to bulk up the filling between the layers. You could also substitute finely chopped nuts for the coconut.
Anyone ever made German chocolate cake without the coconut? Any good substitutes?
