  10. ***ICING***.
  11. Mix icing ingredients-- I personally cut the sugar for the icing in half as it's too sweet for my taste; I suggest you mix 3/4 cup powdered sugar first and taste if you wish to add more.

  13. Sprinkle top with nuts.
  14. Let this cool in the pan you baked it in-- wait until its completely cool before cutting (refrigerate to make it faster).
