I had some challenges with this one but tried to make lemonade out of lemons. The cake is a banana-pecan cake. The frosting is a "real" buttercream using eggs and butter and sugar. The frosting turned out a little salty and less sweet than it should have so I made another batch of caramel and drizzled some of that on the top and then rolled the rest and let it cool, then cut it up and used it for decorations as well as some chocolate covered espresso beans since the buttercream is a caramel-espresso flavor. We'll see if my playing with the cake makes it more fun if not exactly what is in the recipe. :) Talk about some crazy decorating!!
