      Combine all the ingredients in a large bowl and beat with an electric mixer for about 3-5 minutes, until frosting is creamy. (Add icing sugar gradually and sparingly).

      I loved the taste of this frosting. However, I could not get the consistency right for the life of me! I made two separate batches, the second batch turned out better using only 1/4 milk as stated in the recipe. The first batch I used 1/2 cup milk. The frosting looked pretty grainy. I used powdered sugar, maybe I should have used a finer blend or something.

      As written, I found it to be a little too thick to spread. I added more milk to thin it down a bit and it was much better. I prefer my icing to have a stronger butter taste rather than being so sweet, so personally I think it would be better with about 2 more tablespoons of butter in it. It worked fairly well for icing the 12 Emergency Blender Cupcakes I made.

      This was a great easy frosting. I also needed to add more milk but its a keeper. We used it for our heart shaped sugar cookies.
