Praline Caramel Cake

I received this recipe from a friend back in the late 90's. I believe some are making this recipe on this site with a bundt pan, but mine is a little different due to the round cake pans and caramel icing topping.

--PRALINE CARAMEL ICING DIRECTIONS--
Combine all ingredients in heavy saucepan such as a pressure cooker sized pot and cook, stirring constantly until mixture reaches the soft ball stage. (You may have to continually adjust the heat to keep it from bubbling over.) Once softball stage is reached, remove from heat and continue stirring with a flat wooden spatula until iut starts to set up. You will have to move quickly now as the icing will harden very fast. (That's why I suggested extra was paper.) Stack and ice each layer, then the sides. Spoon excess icing on wax paper and top with a pecan half.
