- 4 1/2 cups Powdered sugar...plus a little more depending on the desired spreading consistency of the frosting (I actually buy a large bag to have on hand, but you will not need that much)
- 1/2 cup Butter or margarine softened
- 1 tsp. vanilla extract
- 3 Tablespoons of Milk or a little more depending on desired consistency
In a large bowl, hand mix together softened butter or margarine, powdered sugar, and vanilla extract until smooth, gradually add milk and stir it until smooth and creamy. You can add more powdered sugar or milk until you get it to the desired consistency for icing a cake.
Frost the cooled cake, decorate and enjoy!
