I took this to a dinner party and everyone raved about it. I did add 2/3 cup of pecans to the batter, and made extra frosting. Left nuts out of some of the frosting and trimmed out the cake with the plain frosting and added a ring of whole pecans around the top edge. Great presentation & exceptional taste. Will make again & again.

Make twice and each time...delicious and perfect! Hints: double the frosting, dust your pans w/powdered sugar vs flour. Since cake is large and requires refrigeration...carry it in a large cooler...so your folks don't have to make room for it in their already crowded holiday fridge. Don't worry...it won't last long!
