  1. In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, cream butter until smooth and creamy, 2 to 3 minutes. With mixer on low speed, add 6 cups sugar, milk, and vanilla; mix until light and fluffy. If necessary, gradually add remaining 2 cups sugar to reach desired consistency.

This tasted great. I only used 3 1/2 cups of sugar (I don't care for super sweet icing). I can't imagine what the consistency would have been like if I'd used the recommended amount because this was a super thick, almost like wet sand. It was difficult to frost my cake and all in all i was very frustrated. I tried to add a bit more milk and all it did was puddle up. :(

DD used this frosting to top her chocolate cupcakes for school. This is an easy frosting to prepare and it tastes good. Thank you for sharing a recipe my girls can prepare themselves.
