I made this cake today it was simple and has an amazing taste, I frosted the cake with homemade butter cream icing incorporating the extra toffee and pecan pieces instead of the cream cheese frosting. I frosted the cake when cake was warm the icing soaked into the cake. I served this at my home bible study. It was a BID HIT will make again and again
