butter pecan cake with cream cheese frosting

um... yum!
i made this for our Sunday dessert & it was lovely, and created perfectly full bellies for us to nap with. 
when travis took his first bite, he said, "mmm. super moist, just like it should be. good job babe." and i knew the cake was a success.

butter pecan cake
get the box that looks like this:
& follow instructions accordingly {sometimes my family's kitchen genes come back to me. i am still a box cooker here & there, ha!}. i divided the batter into two 8inch round pans and cooked them separately. layered cakes are da bay-est.

vanilla cream cheese frosting
1/2 cup butter, softened
1 (8oz) package cream cheese, softened
2-3 c powdered sugar
1 tsp vanilla 

use your electric mixer to mix together the butter and cream cheese for three minutes, so that it's super smooth. add the vanilla, mix. add the powdered sugar gradually, until you get the thickness that you want {heck, you may need more than 3 cups. go for it.}

once it's all done & done, spread the frosting on your stacked cakes and voila! delicious.
