servings,

3
cups powdered sugar
1/3
cup butter or margarine, softened
1 1/2
teaspoons vanilla
1
to 2 tablespoons milk
  1. In medium bowl, mix powdered sugar and butter with spoon or electric mixer on low speed. Stir in vanilla and 1 tablespoon of the milk.
  2. Gradually beat in just enough remaining milk to make frosting smooth and spreadable. If frosting is too thick, beat in more milk, a few drops at a time. If frosting becomes too thin, beat in a small amount of powdered sugar. Frosts 13x9-inch cake generously, or fills and frosts an 8- or 9-inch two-layer cake.
Makes 12 servings, about 1 3/4 cups frosting
