the graniness didnt seem to go away, even days afterwards. it wasn't unpleasant, but i would have preferred a creamier texture, i enjoyed the taste tho!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a large mixing bowl, cream the butter (on medium speed) until smooth.
  2. Add in the sugars; beat on low for 2 minutes.
  3. Add in the milk, syrup, and vanilla; beat 3-5 minutes until smooth and creamy.
  4. Use immediately or store, covered, at room temperature for up to 2 days.
  5. **Reportedly, the icing tastes better if made the day before because the brown sugar gives the icing a slightly grainy texture that improves if allowed to set overnight.
