Cream Cheese Frosting
This easy-to-make frosting is one the best, most versatile frostings you can prepare. By adding cocoa powder a tablespoon at a time, it can be as chocolatey as you like, or a few drops of food coloring will create the tint you desire. But even in its "plain" state, it's an always reliable and delicious topping to any cake.
- Blend the softened cream cheese and butter with an electric mixer.
- Beat in the sugar, a little at a time.
- Add the vanilla and pecans, if desired, and mix well.
