Tip #1

- Nothing is better than a great buttercream frosting. Be sure to follow directions carefully when cooking the flour-milk mixture. In addition, it is important to beat the frosting until all the sugar has dissolved to avoid lumps in the frosting.

Tip #2

- To toast nuts, spread in single layer on ungreased 15x10x1-inch baking pan. Bake at 350°F, stirring occasionally, 5-10 minutes or until light golden brown. Remove from pan; cool completely.
