Preheat oven to 180 C, 160 C fan, Gas mark 4.
Place the cake ingredients in a large bowl and mix together well until thoroughly combined.
Divide mixture between two greased and bottom lined 20cm sandwich tins and bake on middle shelf of preheated oven for 30-35 minutes until well risen and a skewer inserted in the centre of each cake comes out clean.
Turn out and cool on a wire rack.
Meanwhile prepare the icing by beating together the icing ingredients, except the pecan halves, until well mixed.
When the cakes are completely cold, sandwich together with half of the icing and spread the remaining icing over the top of the cake. Decorate with reserved pecan halves.
