Thought this was very good and easy to execute. Just like another reviewer, I thought it stayed nice and moist. I only used a 1/3 of the pecans and thought it was plenty, although I might add more cinnamon next time! :o)

I just made this and it was fantastic!! I usually don't back with cake mixes but had an extra on hand. It doesn't taste like a box cake at all-this topping would work equally well with a homemade cake!!!

Excellent!!! My family loved it. The graham crackers added alot to this cake. I even found out that after a day or two it even tastes better, and really moist.
