I found this recipe in a microwave cookbook I bought at the libary for a quarter. Its a good frosting for cakes of any kind.

a nice frosting recipe for when I forget to take the butter out of the fridge to soften it up for my usual frosting recipe...But be prepared to double the recipe for a 2 layer cake or a 13 x 9 cake...Thank you for posting the recipe and what's the name of the microwave cookbook you got it from?
