  • 3 c powdered sugar
  • c butter softened
  • 1 ½ tsp vanilla
  • 2 tbsp milk 1-2


  • In medium bowl, mix powdered sugar and butter with spoon or electric mixer on low speed.
  • Stir in vanilla and 1 tablespoon of the milk.
  • Gradually beat in just enough remaining milk to make frosting smooth and spreadable.
  • If frosting is too thick, beat in more milk, a few drops at a time. If frosting becomes too thin, beat in a small amount of powdered sugar.
  • Frosts 13x9-inch cake generously, or fills and frosts an 8- or 9-inch two-layer cake.


Allow your butter to soften at room temperature so it easily beats up smoothly with the powdered (sometimes called confectioner’s) sugar.
