This frosting does not require lots of sugar but has the same fluffy texture as the on emade with lots of sugar. Enjoy eating yummy and healthy at the same time!
- 1⁄2 cup butter, softened
- 2⁄3 confectioners' sugar

- 3 tablespoons milk
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 dash salt
- Cream softened butter on high speed until it turns pale, or a little over 1 minute

- Spoon in the milk, one tablespoon at a time. Beat thoroughly before adding in the next spoon. Yield is a guess.
Nice texture and delicious. Very sweet tasting in spite of being low sugar. A+! You may want to double the recipe for a multi-layer cake if you're using it between the layers and on the side of the cake, but the amount worked well to cover my 13X9 inch single-layer cake.
