  Categories: Cheesecakes, Celebrity, Chocolate
       Yield: 12 servings
   2 1/2 c  Self-rising flour
       1 ts White vinegar
   1 1/2 c  Sugar
       1 ts Soda
       1 c  Buttermilk
       2 lg Eggs
       1 ts Unsweetened cocoa
       1 ts Vanilla
   1 1/2 c  Cooking oil
     1/4 c  Red food coloring; 2 bottles
     1/3 lb Butter; softened
       1 lb Powdered sugar
      10 oz Cream cheese; softened
       2 c  Nuts; finely chopped
   Mix all cake ingredients together at medium speed in a
   mixer until well blended. Pour into 3 prepared 9 cake
   pans. Bake at 350~F for approximately 20 minutes.
   FROSTING: Beat first three ingredients together until
   fluffy. Fold in 1 1/2 cups pecans, reserving 1/2 cup to
   decorate the top of the cake. Frost cooled cake layers,
   then decorate the top.  W.S. didn't say, but walnuts would
   also work fine. Chill cake one hour or more before serving.
