    Pierce potatoes and microwave for roughly 8 minutes, cool, peel and cut into chunks.

    Cool cake on rack for 15 minutes, carefully turn cake onto serving platter and finish cooling completely. Make glaze when cake is just luke warm.

    Glaze: Sift powdered sugar in mixing bowl with chopped pecans. In a medium saucepan; add cream, sugar and butter. Over low heat; melt butter and sugar together, until sugar is melted. Bring to a boil, stirring continuously for 2 minutes. Pour into the confectioners' sugar and pecan mixture. Whisk until smooth...if you want a thicker glaze add more sugar. I let it set up for a few minutes, then pour over cake. Delicious!
