    I doubled the recipe so I could make a 3 layer cake and then did a pan of cupcakes with the extra batter and my family was very happy about the surprise cupcakes! I made this cake for my boyfriend’s birthday and it was such a hit!! I also crushed up more pecans for the sides of the cake and then made carrot shavings (short and longer spirals) and covered them in some brown sugar and butter and broiled them for like 30 seconds *chefs kiss* sassy crunchy cake topper. LOVE this recipe! It was my first time using this app and I’m a big fan the follow along directions and video were Awesome, kind of felt like an episode of black mirror in a good way? Anyway, cake was delicious ❤️❤️❤️
