I like the recipe CRenee posted and I think I’ll try it in the future.
If you don’t mind a frosting that’s loaded with sugar and great for piping then you will like this vanilla frosting:
1 cup softened butter
1 Tsp vanilla extract
2-3 Tblsp milk
4 cups powdered sugar
Using the paddle attachment, cream the butter. Add the vanilla extract and cream a little more.
Begin adding the powdered sugar one cup at a time with mixer at low speed, then increase to medium speed until all the sugar is mixed in. Repeat this process until all the sugar has been added and incorporated.
Add the milk when the frosting begins to thicken (I add it after about half of the sugar has been added). You can adjust the amount of milk you add, depending on how thick you want the frosting to be.
This pipes very nicely and takes about 10 -15 minutes to make.
Good luck and have fun with your cupcakes, frosting, and party, SweetNess14445
