I created this recipe to highlight my Black Walnut Pound cake. I wanted the frosting to be as unique as the cake, & this is my interpretation of my vision for the recipe.

It turned out even better than I had anticipated. It REALLY COMPLIMENTED THE CAKE in flavor.

The Fancy Nut Solo Filling combined with the BLACK WALNUTS & other ingredients TO CREATE A CREAMY FROSTING, created a very unique flavor, with just a hint of the FRANGELICO LIQUEUR.

I made this to go with the 30 cup Pound cake that I made, in hopes of sharing it with Family @ our REUNION THIS YEAR. It is a winner for sure.

How to Make Fancy Nut Black Walnut Cream Cheese Frosting

Step-by-Step

  1. Please NOTE: BLACK WALNUTS has a unique and different flavor from English Walnuts) a bit pricey but worth it. I ended up ordering my Black Walnuts from Amazon & Nuts.com.
  2. This is what they look like before you crack them. Add softened butter and Powdered sugar to a large bowl. Beat till it comes together.
  3. Add softened cream cheese and beat again to blend.
  4. Add the coffee granules, coffee flavor, Frangelico Liqueur, & Black Walnut Flavor, then beat again to blend together.
  5. Add Fancy Nut filling, and beat to blend together till blended.
  6. Add evaporated milk 1 tablespoon at a time till desired spreading consistency is reached.
  7. Add Chopped Black Walnuts and stir till blended into frosting.
  8. Frost cake as desired. Garnish if desired. Refrigerate any left overs, and save for another use, or freeze till needed.
