What Icing Goes on This Cake?

I like making a simple powdered sugar glaze for this pecan cake. You can also use my Homemade Cream Cheese Frosting Recipe.

Does This Use Real Bourbon?

Yes, the Pecan Cake does use real bourbon. If you are worried about children eating this, the bourbon will be cooked out of it. Some people are concerned that the alcohol doesn’t burn off and while it is only a small amount of bourbon added to the recipe, it is a personal choice if you give this to children.
