Cream-Filled Butter Pecan Birthday Cake
This cake was excellent. If you are a fan of butter pecan you will love this. Super duper easy, and it came out perfectly. The cake is moist and delicious, and I just loved the caramel sauce mixed with the butter pecan cake. I can see this recipe working with nearly any type of cake, as well, so you can really get creative with it! Instead of the chocolate covered toffee bits, I used Heath brand Bits O' Brickle and bought some bourbon praline pecans and chopped them up nice and fine, and sprinkled both of those on top of the whipped cream on each layer. Added a very nice touch. I made this cake for my mom's birthday and she said it was so good that she wanted it every year for her birthday but that I was never allowed to make it again, haha! I have to agree, it is quite dangerous. I had two giant pieces of it myself. Definitely good if you have a serious sweet tooth.

Root Beer Float Cake
Super yummy, super moist, and super easy! Has a subtle rootbeer flavor that is really delish! I wasn't crazy about the icing - honestly I'm just not nuts about canned frostings to begin with - but it complimented the cake well enough I suppose. Someone with a little more imagination could probably whip up something a lot tastier for a topping than I could, though. If you're looking for something a little out of the ordinary to serve at a party, this is a good way to go.
