German Chocolate Cake from scratch - worth the trouble?

My son's birthday is coming up and he wants German Chocolate cake with the traditional coconut pecan frosting. We did a test run of the canned frosting yesterday and, I have to say, I was pretty disappointed. Is there a great recipe out there for coconut pecan frosting other than the one on the German Chocolate baking bars? Should I just make the cake from a mix or go homemade with that, too?
