Frankfurter Kranz-German Buttercream Cake HELP!!!

Redstickchef | Dec 13, 201108:09 AM

This year my Christmas baking theme is centered around my german heritage and therfore I have chosen many German based confections to serve both on Christmas Eve and Christams Day i.e. stollen, lebkuchen, pfeffuernesse, etc. My piece de resistance, however, is Frankfurter Kranz , a multi-layered cake baked in a bundt pan cut into three layers, frosted with german buttercream and then coated with a sort of praline topping. The recipe I am using is from the "Time-Life: Foods of the World, Recipes:The Cooking of Germany". I was wondering if anyone else had had any experience baking this cake? Also, the recipe that I am going by, calls for a pound of butter in the frosting. I do not want to use a pound of butter and have looked at other recipes online that call instead for using a pudding mix in the frosting and am wondering if anyone has had experience with this and what the results have been. Thank you for your help!
