I'm from Alabama (now live in California). We used to drive to Panama City, Florida just to eat at Seven Seas. They had a glorious 3 layer cake called Fued Cake. OMG! It was worth the 6 hour drive. It is 3 nine inch layers of a chiffon type cake that uses pecan meal for the flour. It is iced fairly thickly with whipped cream and, of course, pecan pieces decorate the top. If it wasn't for the fat in the whipping cream (I do not do Coolwhip.....ever), using Splenda for your sweetener would make this the perfect, diabetic super dessert! Can't wait to try it!
