Cream Cheese Pecan Frosting

(2 Votes)
Coming In:
2 1/4 cups

This rich Cream Cheese Pecan Frosting has just the right amount of crunch from pecans, and is perfect for a red velvet cake or any cake!

What You'll Need:
  • 1 (8-ounce) package cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, softened
  • 2 1/2 cups confectioners' sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup chopped pecans
What To Do:
  1. In a medium bowl, with an electric beater on medium speed, beat cream cheese, butter, confectioners' sugar, and vanilla. Increase speed to high and beat 1 to 2 more minutes, until frosting is smooth. Stir in pecans until thoroughly mixed. Use immediately, or cover and chill until ready to use, allowing it to soften again when needed.

Make sure to use a thin layer of this frosting. That way, you'll be able to see the color of the cake under the frosting.

I use this frosting when I make a from scratch Italian Cream cake. I frost the layers but not the sides.
