Your wish is my command!
You guys - this is the easiest recipe EVAH. Tracey and I have been having this icing since we were wee bairns. When my mother makes it, she will save some in tupperware, freeze it, and present it to us when she brings the cake on our birthday.
There is nothing better on this planet.
(Except for the first five minutes of the 10th episode of Season 1 of the Outlander series on Starz, entitled "By the Pricking of My Thumbs.")
|A wee bit of "OMG!!!"|
1 pkg. (16 oz) Powdered Sugar (about 4 cups)
1/2 cup (1 stick) Butter or Margarine, softened
2 tsp Vanilla
1/3 cup Milk
|Tracey's birthday was just |
a couple weeks ago. Bet she
didn't get anything as good
as Episode 10 as a gift. :)
ADD sugar, butter and vanilla. Gradually add milk, beating with electric mixer on low speed until well blended. If frosting becomes too thick, beat in addition milk by teaspoonfuls until frosting is of spreading consistency. (You can use coffee if you don't have more milk.)
That's it! VERY simple...no fancy ingredients (although I'm sure you could get fancy and see what happens.) Just amazingly flavorful, chocolatey goodness (that still isn't quite as good as the first five minutes of Ep 10.) :)
