Cook's Notes

Add the sugar to taste; adding slowly until you reach the sweetness level you prefer; usually 3/4 of a box is enough.

hi, Mario Bosquez from "Living Today". Regarding your question about the sugar... Definitely add the sugar to taste (sometimes it takes half a box but taste as you go) If you add the crushed pecans before you add the sugar it will help create a shinier frosting when you stir the frosting with a whisk... Also, if you like you can let the cake cool off a bit before frosting.. enjoy!!!

Whern do you add the 1 lb of sugar? I guess I acn figure it out, but the recipe seems to miss a step.
