My son's favorite frosting paired with Devil's Food Cake [mine too!]
Original Recipe Yield 2 1/2 cups: enough for 2 dozen cupcakes or a full sheet cake.
- 3 cups confectioners' sugar
- 2 1/2 tablespoons milk
- 4 tablespoons butter
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract [ I sometimes like to add 2, just because]
- In medium bowl, melt butter in microwave [30 seconds]. Add milk, stir in the vanilla and confectioners' sugar. Beat with an electric mixer until thick and smooth.
**To make chocolate butter cream frosting add 1/4 cup cocoa and a bit more [1 or 2 tsp] milk.
