Anywho, I decided to share with you my my mom's recipe for butter cream icing! It's amaaaazing.
Like how I blurred out the last name? All thanks to my part-time lover, Picassa. :)
- 4 sticks of butter, softened (I like to let mine warm up on the stove, sometimes I microwave to speed along the process)
- 2 lbs of confectioner sugar
- 2 tsp vanilla (don't get imitation vanilla, people)
- 3 tsp of milk (to start with)
Back to the recipe.
Add additional milk as needed to get the perfect consistency for icing. The result?
Enough buttery goodness to make Paula Deen pee her pants.
This icing couldn't be easier to make and I haven't found a soul who didn't like it. Plus, the color has just the slightest tint of yellow to make it pretty enough to not add food coloring to. Though I do like to add a few shakes of shimmery glitter sprinkles myself. :)
This icing works great for any cake or cupcake... or to just keep in a bowl in the fridge when you need a spoonful of sinful goodness. Ahem.
