I made this cake for a dinner party and was very impressed with the recipe! I did not have pecans and used walnuts instead and it was still fabulous. I will try it with pecans next time. I agree with another commenter, that the frosting will set, it just needs stirring. The frosting is an excellent recipe as well. A great holiday or special occasion cake!
