How to make it
- Preheat oven to 350F. Line two 9" diameter cake pans w/parchment paper. Spray with cooking spray.
- Combine flours, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, and alspice in medium mixing bowl. Blend well. In a separate large bowl, combine oil, sugar, eggs, and vanilla. Mix until well blended. Fold in flour mixture, then zucchini and pecans. Divide evenly between two cake pans.
- Bake cake about 45 minutes, or until tester inserted in center comes out clean. Cool completely in pan on rack until completely cool (very important!) at least one hour. Turn cakes out and peel off parchment paper.
- Combine cream cheese and butter in a mixing bowl, using an electric mixer. Add vanilla, cinnamon, orange zest and sugar. Spread about half onto one top, place other cake on top lining up the sides as closely as you can. Use the rest of the frosting to cover the top & sides. Sprinkle a handful of pecans on top.
