Hi Cmrv, I'm glad this cake was a hit! Thanks for the tip about the glaze - I'm sure other readers will find that really helpful. - Natalie, Editor of FaveSouthernRecipes

Just made this for Thanksgiving Day Dinner. The cake is delicious. I roasted the pecans so they were crispy and delicious. After I chopped them in my chopper, I sifted out the pecan dust and used it in the cake batter. Yummy! One thing I was frustrated with is, I did find it difficult to keep the glaze on the cake because it was too thin and watery. I reglazed it about 10 times, waiting 30 minutes between applications, in order for it to be a thick enough coating, and let it sit overnight to completely harden. The next time I would decrease the amount of milk in the glaze, 1 cup is too much for that amount of powdered sugar. I'd add the milk in a little at a time, to get the correct consistency to have it drizzle down the sides as in the picture. It was a big hit with everyone. )
