Cream butter, margarine and powdered sugar. Add remaining ingredients. Frost torte and sprinkle with chopped nuts. Torte can be cut in squares and served. Or, cut in 3 layers and then frost each layer and outside of torte.
This cake is our favorite. The cake itself is like a sponge cake
texture. I think you will really enjoy it.
