Make the frosting:
Fit the bowl of a stand mixer with paddle attachment, and beat the cream cheese, butter, and vanilla on medium-high speed until very smooth and creamy. Beat mixture for 2 more minutes on medium-high.
On low speed, gradually mix in the powdered sugar and beat until fluffy.
Frost cupcakes using a pastry bag or preferred kitchen tool and sprinkle with chopped pecans (if using).
