This easy to make buttercream icing is a classic for a reason: it’s delicious! Use it to decorate cakes, cupcake or as a filling.
1. Place butter in a medium bowl with an electric mixer, beat butter until creamy. 2. Beat in vanilla. 3. Sprinkle in powdered sugar, a half-cup at a time, beating well between additions and scraping sides of bowl often. 4. Add milk, a teaspoon at a time, beating after each addition, until very soft (almost like a thick glaze in consistency). 5. Cover until ready to use.
