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

Top Review by Darkhunter

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.
