  2. Bake 35 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool cake completely in pan on wire rack.
  3. Beat cream cheese and butter with mixer on medium until blended. Gradually add sugar, beating well after each addition.

  • Kraft Kitchens Tips:
  • How to Neatly Frost the Cake: Freeze cake layers about 20 minutes before frosting. This helps to set the crumbs on the cut edges of the cake layers so they don't pull up into the frosting. And don't worry if the frosting does not look perfect on the sides of the cake - the nuts will cover any imperfections.
  • Variation: How to Prepare in Round Cake Pans: Prepare as directed. Pour evenly into 2 greased and floured 8 or 9-inch round cake pans. Bake 30 to 35 minutes or until toothpick inserted in centers comes out clean. Cool 10 minutes in pans on wire rack; remove from pans. Fill and frost with PHILADELPHIA Walnut Frosting. Store in refrigerator.
