I made this cake over the weekend and thought I would share the recipe with you because it was REALLY good!

Pecan-Caramel Cake

1 box of vanilla cake mix
3 eggs
1/3 cup veggie oil
1 1/2 cups water
3.4 cup finely chipped pecans
20 soft caramel candies
1/2 cup heavy cream

Heat oven to 350 degrees.  Coat 2 round cake pans with cooking spray (I only had 1 so baked the cakes back to back).

Mix cake mix and eggs, oil and water.  Add pecans and bake for 24-29 minutes.  Cool 10 min. then remove from pan and let the cakes completely cool.

While the cake is cooling melt the caramels in a pan with the cream.  Then poke large holes into the cake and pour the caramel over it. Let the cake sit for 1 hour 

8 oz cream cheese softened
1/2 cup unsalted butter soft
1 box of powered sugar
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 cup pecans

Mix all but pecans together.  Ice cake and add pecans around the edges.  Refrigerate at least 1 hour before serving.
