  2. Add sugar gradually, beating after each addition.
  3. Add 3 tablespoons milk, beating until smooth. Beat in more milk until desired spreading consistency is reached.
  4. Makes about 2 1/3 cups of frosting, enough to frost tops and sides of of an 8-inch 2-layer cake or a 10-inch tube or bundt cake, or about 1 dozen cupcakes.
