Making an Elvis Presley Sheet Cake
Combine the cake mix, pudding, eggs, oil, and milk in a large mixing bowl. For one minute, beat with an electric mixer. Scrape down the sides and beat for two minutes, or until smooth.
1 yellow cake mix, 1 vanilla pudding box, 4 eggs, 1/2 cup oil, 1 cup milk
Bake for 30-35 minutes, or until golden and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, in a greased 913 baking dish.

While the cake is baking, combine the pineapple and sugar in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Bring to a gentle boil over medium-high heat, stirring constantly, until the sugar is dissolved. Take the pan off the heat.

1 cup sugar, 1 can crushed pineapple
When the cake is done, take it from the oven and poke holes all over the top with a fork. Pour the hot pineapple mixture over the top of the hot cake and spread to cover. Allow to cool.

Cream the butter and cream cheese with an electric mixer in a large mixing bowl until smooth and creamy. While mixing with an electric mixer, gradually add the confectioner’s sugar, scraping down the sides as needed. If using, stir in the pecans.
1 cream cheese package, 1/2 cup butter, 3 cups confectioner’s sugar, 1/2 cup chopped pecans
Place dollops of icing on top of the cooled cake. Spread the bits evenly over the cake, careful not to disturb the pineapple topping. If desired, top the completed cake with extra pecans.
