On med-high speed, beat until fluffy. Divide batter between two pans. Bake for 25-30 min, or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool 10 min. Transfer cake to racks. Cool completely.

Over medium heat, cook pecans in dry skillet, stirring until fragrant, 2 min. Remove; cool.

"Holidays 2009" This cake takes time, but is very much worth it. You can even decorate it with pumpkins and candy leaves.

Rated  by a cook on 11/12/2010 This cake is delicious. I made it as a 9x13 sheet cake and as cupcakes. I only had to make one batch of the frosting since I was not doing layer cake. Everyone loved it!
