June's Out if This World Pecan Cake
June is a green thumb and also a "cordon bleu". I have been very fortunate to have her as my friend. I cherish her. This cake takes time to make since every pecan is shelled fresh from the trees of South Carolina. For some reasons that I have not yet found this cakes gives me "Deja-Vue" of maple flavors even without the maple. Who'd figure? June enriches my life with her friendship and cake too.
