Can’t have a cake recipe without a frosting recipe. This recipe makes about a cup of frosting. It takes about half the recipe to cover the 4 inch cake recipe from earlier in the week, depending how thick you like your frosting. I personally believe you can’t have too much frosting. If you don’t agree, spread the remaining frosting between two graham crackers and freeze until solid for a treat after the cake is gone.
Homemade Butter Cream Frosting
1 cup plus 2 tablespoons powdered sugar
4 TBS butter
11/2 tsp milk
1/4 tsp vanilla
In a medium sized bowl, cream the butter and powdered sugar together with an electric mixer. Add milk and vanilla beat until combined. For chocolate frosting: add 2 tsp cocoa powder to the powdered sugar.
