Elvis Cake - Dave's Birthday Cake

Photo from marnie334 
Dave's Birthday was Monday.... For the first time in 20 years he did not request for me to make a Cheesecake  for his Birthday Cake.  This time he requested an Elvis Cake.  

I first made this cake to take to a friends house for dinner.  It's gooey and yummy with pineapple, pecans and cream cheese frosting.  What's not to like and it's fairly simple with just some wait time for cooling.

Elvis Cake Recipe
1 Box of Yellow Cake Mix
1  Box of Vanilla Pudding
Make the cake according to the box and add the pudding into the mix.  Bake as directed, you may need to add a couple of minutes.

Once the cake is cooled poke holes in it. Then Boil 
8oz Crushed Pineapple
1C Sugar
Pour over the cake, allow to cool before frosting.

Frosting
1 stick of butter
1 8oz block of cream cheese
4 C Powdered Sugar

Chopped toasted pecans for topping.   Chill and serve.

You will not be disappointed with this cake it's always good even the doggies wanted a piece of it they tasted the frosting while I was cleaning up.
