This is a simple recipe that can be used for cakes & cupcakes. You can change up the flavor, tint it for color – it’s very versatile.

1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, softened
3 cups powdered sugar
3 Tablespoons milk (as needed)
1 teaspoon vanilla

In the bowl of an electric mixer cream the butter while adding the sugar SLOWLY, a little at a time. Add the vanilla, then the milk as needed. Once you get the consistency you want, turn the mixer up to medium high and WHIP it for about 10-15 seconds.

Now you’re ready to frost!
