This is the frosting for the NUTTY CREAM CHEESE CAKE that I posted.


  1. Cream together butter, cream cheese and confectioners sugar, add milk last.
  2. Add enough milk to make creamy (1 or 2 tablespoons) according to how creamy you want your frosting.
  3. Brown pecans in 3 TBLspoons of butter.
  4. Frost between each layer and sprinkle with browned nuts.
  5. Frost side of cake and pat on remaining nuts.
  6. Frost top of cake.
  7. NOTE: Use this on the NUTTY CREAM CHEESE CAKE.

Very, very good, Lali. Butter cream frostings are my favorite, and this stands out as one of the best. A word of caution, though. I frosted the sides with too much and, consequently, the pecans did not want to stay, but tended to droop because of the weight! Will know better next time! I used this with a butter pecan boxed cake mix. Will probably try your cake, next time. Thnx for posting your recipe, Lali.
