Cream Cheese Frosting

This icing is the perfect complement to my Red Velvet Cake, but is great on any cake or even cupcakes. You can also leave the pecans out, if you prefer.


  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1 (8-ounce) block cream cheese
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 4 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 cup coarsely chopped pecans

Bring butter and cream cheese to room temperature, then combine in large bowl with an electric mixer or with a stand mixer.
Mix in vanilla and slowly add powdered sugar.
Once combined, mix in pecans.
