Pour into your greased & baking paper lined baking pan, and bake for 35-40 minutes. I actually halved the recipe and used a small pan. If you use a regular one, do it in 2 batches, 30-40 mins each.

I baked it all in one go, so I made 3 layers. If you baked in two batches, just halve each of it so you have four layers. After layers have been cut, refrigerate for another 30 mins.

Then add more icing in the centre and spread to the edges. It's just a thin layer of frosting; but not too little as well! Repeat this until you've reached the outermost top layer.

When you've reached the top, add more frosting than you did in the previous layers to give a fuller effect. Sprinkle pecans. (PS: I always refrigerate for another hour; so it sets before slicing)
