Recipe Tips


  • You will want to make sure you use a full-fat sour cream. It will taste better than if you use fat-free or low-fat.
  • If you want you can use walnuts instead of pecans. Just make sure it's finely chopped walnuts
  • Make sure the cake is completely cooled down before adding the glaze.  This will make sure you don't have a soggy mess.
