Got this out of Cuisine at Home magazine. When I saw the picture in the magazine I almost licked the page. So I made this for my husbands birthday. I doubled the recipe and made one 2-layered cake and 24 cupcakes so he could take some to work. For the cupcakes I cut the tops off and put some frosting in the center and then on top. So it was kinda like a layered cupcake. I also used my food processor to mix everything. Makes it very quick. Another hint from the book is to use an electric knife to cut the cake. Since the frosting is very sticky. We did that and it worked very good. Looked beautiful. Also came with a recipe for a Sweetened Sour Cream to serve along side this. The cake definately doesn't need it but it tastes really good so why not? My husband said it tastes like spice cake and a pecan pie mixed together.
