If you like frosting so sweet that it will gag you, then give this one a try. It uses 4 ingredients always on hand. The sweet milk in the title just lets you know it doesn't use buttermilk or sour milk. My family likes this on yellow cake or white cake, and to sandwich together teacakes. A word of advice...don't try to make this frosting if it is raining...it will NEVER get hard. And make sure to boil it the full 90 seconds, so that the icing isn't grainy.
