Vanilla Buttercream Frosting Recipe

This is my go-to recipe for frosting for cakes/cinnamon rolls/cupcakes/etc..

YUM!  When my daughter was little, her friends were always thrilled when she brought in cupcakes for her birthday, because of this frosting!!  🙂

3 cups powdered sugar

1/3 cut softened butter (not margarine)

1 1/2 tsp vanilla

About 2 Tbs of milk

Mix powdered sugar and margarine in stand mixer.  Add in vanilla and milk.  Stir until combined.

Beat on high until frosting is creamy and smooth.  You may have to add a touch more milk – but not too much as runny frosting isn’t good!

This is for a 2 layer or 13×9 cake..
