What a wonderful delight this cake was! I made it for my son's birthday and we all enjoyed it. I did sub sliced almonds for the pecans due to allergies and they tasted great. Only one little change, I decreased the almond extract to 1tsp. (in the ganache) and it was ample. I don't own a candy thermometer and I think I took the carmel sauce off the heat a little early, no problem, it wasn't thick but it was delicious! This will make many more appearances at our table. Thanks for sharing your recipe.

We're all wandering around the house rubbing our tummies and gushing about how good this cake is! And how huge! Toasted pecans and multiple sauces with a creamy filling add up to the "leaning tower of nirvana," as DS20 called it. Made for Pick A Chef Spring 2008.
