Rated 5 out of 5 by from OMG this was so-o-o good! I made a 1/2 sheet cake with golden butter cake and filled one side of it with the praline filling and frosted with the maple buttercream and the other half with the strawberry filling on this site and plain BC and took it to work for taste testing. Everyone just loved both of them, but they are still talking about the "maple nut" one. To make as is - rather pricey but it makes so much, I could have easily halved. It's also really sweet, just to warn people who think something can get too sweet! The recipe calls it a cupcake filling, but it appears awfully thick and chunky to go through a bismark tip. Would like to hear from those who have filled cupcakes with this.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I did my first ever wedding cake back in July & the bride wanted yellow cake with something "different" inside. I suggested some kind of pecan filling & then found this recipe. When I made it for her to try she LOVED it. I have since made 4 more cakes with this flilling- all people who were at her wedding that absolutley loved it!! It is a little time consuming ( & can get expensive depending on how much cake you are trying to fill), but so very, very worth it!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Its a little time consuming, but finally something to do with all the egg yolks that I always seem to have. I like to toast the pecans before making this. Very good with toasted coconut also.
