Egg Nog Cake

Was down in TN visiting the 'rents this past weekend. It was great seeing them. Had a fantastic, relaxing trip. On Sunday, mom invited a few of her Eastern Star friends over and we made homemade ravioli's and pasta sauce. Barb, brought over these fantastic little cakes, and I wanted to share to them with everyone.

1 store bought angel food cake
1 box confectioner's sugar
1 stick softened butter
1/2 cup bourbon (no blended whiskey)
crushed pecans & vanilla wafers (equal parts - usually start with 1 cup of each.

Cut the cake into 1" pieces. Combine butter, sugar and bourbon and dip cake pieces into this mixture. Then roll cake in nut-wafter mixture. Store ina tin with waxed paper between layers. (this cake gets better as it "ages").
