This is my favourite icing. You can make it in vanilla or chocolate flavours.

I am a sloppy baker -- I didn't measure. But it turned out terrific anyway! I was trying to double the recipe. Here's what I did: 1 stick (1/4 lb) butter, softened (That's about 115 gm) spash of vanilla mix powdered sugar till stiff add hot water till right consistency. I was able to ice 24 cupcakes with those amounts. Both kids gave the icing a thumbs up.
- 1 1⁄2 cups icing sugar, sifted
- 60 g butter, softened
- 2 tablespoons boiling water
- 1 teaspoon vanilla essence
