“I love this icing with the White Cake recipe that I posted. This is not a thick icing like those you buy. This also came from my sister-in-law. We use this for lots of different baked goods that require icing.”
READY IN:
10mins
SERVES:
12
YIELD:
1 cake or twelve cupcakes
UNITS:
US

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 12 teaspoon vanilla
  • 12 teaspoon milk, add more to desired consistancy
  • 1 dash salt (may substitute or omit)
  • 14 cup butter (for the Buttercream Icing you would add the butter to the recipe)

Directions

  1. Mix powdered sugar and vanilla.
  2. Add milk teaspoon by teaspoon until desired consistency.
  3. Dash salt.
  4. Note: Do NOT pour in the milk.
  5. Trust me.
  6. Do this as instructed, or you will have to keep adding sugar until you get a good consistency, and then you will end up with enough icing to cover surplus amout of cakes!
  7. (If you are icing everything in your home, then go right ahead).
