A local bakery makes a cake they call a praline cake. It's a yellow cake with a "parline or caramel filling" and a cream cheese/caramel frosting. I think the "praline filling" is a syrup poured over the cake as it cools because the cake is super moist. Does anyone have a recipe that sounds similar?

Well, pralines are a caramel covered pecan type confection (the caramel isn't chewy, but it's not hard like Werther's, either). From your description, it sounds like they are making a hot caramel syrup and mixing it with chopped pecans to fill the cake. If the caramel is hot and syrupy, then some of it will soak into the cake.

You could make your favorite yellow cake recipe and for the filling, try heating a jar of dulce de leche with just enough simpl syrup to make it slightly runny and mix with chopped pecans. For the icing, I would sub a cup of dulce de leche (straight from the jar) for a cup of the powdered sugar in a standard cream cheese icing recipe.
