This is what my mom always used when I was a child. I love this frosting! Great on brownies!

Great recipe, glad I chose this one out of the hundreds available. Good to read the tips about adding the extra milk as I had to also do so.
was really easy to make - I ran out when covering my cake and whipped up a little extra in no time - recipe works so well that for this little extra frosting I didn't even measure the ingredients just bunged them in the pan and voila...
Loved that it wasn't too sweet like other frostings I have tried in the past.
One thing I would do differently is to sift the powdered (icing) sugar as I didn't and had tiny little chunks of the sugar in the finished frosting (but I was decoratinga spider cake so it was no problem!)
Thanks Sherri for sharing
