In a large mixing bowl, cream 1 stick of butter with the 2 cups of granulated sugar. Add eggs one at a time. Add flour mixture and buttermilk alternately to the creamed mixture, mixing after each addition. Add melted candy bar mixture and mix to combine.
Pour into a greased 9 x 13 baking pan and bake for 1 hour or until cake is done in the center. You can also use 3 9 inch pans. Remove from oven and allow to cool.
To make the icing, melt the remaining 3 Milky Way bars with remaining 1 stick butter (in a double boiler or in a saucepan over very low heat). Add powdered sugar, dash of salt, milk, 1 teaspoon vanilla, and chopped pecans and stir over low heat. Add more milk if needed. Pour over the cooled cake and allow to set. Cake will be very sticky!
