    So far so good. I won't be serving this until Christmas, but it looks and smells yummy! I am wondering, though, if you typically sprinkle the pecans on the top, mix them in with the frosting, or mix them in with the cake? I'm sprinkling them on the top, but you might want to edit the recipe. Thanks!

    I have made this cake time and time again and I have perfected it. I double the ingredients to make the frosting and I mix the flower and baking soda in a different bowl, then I take spoon fulls in the sifter one at a time, and through each sift I mix it in.

    It's delicious and moist and I was told it's called wedding cake cause the ingredients have "2" of everything - get it not, single but a couple??

    hello<br/>I have been making this cake for years, - so much so that it's almost my signature dish.<br/>I usually put lemon juice in the icing to cut the sweetness, and use unsweetened pineapple (crushed ) a 600g tin seems to be heaps.<br/>We have always known it as Mexican wedding cake recipe too.<br/>cheers<br/>Lorraine<br/>Lorri14nz
