For this recipe I use a store bought Butter Pecan cake mix, but the best part is the homemade frosting from The Cake Mix Doctor by Anne Byrn!

  • 1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, at room temp
  • 8 tablespoons (1 stick) butter, at room temp
  • 2-1/2 cups confectioners sugar, sifted
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup frozen unsweetened grated coconut, thawed
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped pecans


  • Place the cream cheese and butter in a large mixing bowl.
  • Blend with an electric mixer on low speed until combined, 30 seconds.
  • Stop the machine.
  • Add the confectioners sugar, a bit at a time, blending with the mixer on low speed until the sugar is well incorporated, 1 minute.
  • Add the vanilla, then increase the mixer speed to medium, and blend the frosting until fluffy, 1 minute more.
  • Fold in the coconut and pecans.
