    Ingredients:

    Yield:

    layer 9 ...

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Place the butter in a large mixing bowl.
    2. 2
      Add in 4 cups sugar, then the milk and vanilla.
    3. 3
      On medium speed of an electric mixer, beat about 3-5 minutes or until smooth and creamy.
    4. 4
      Gradually add the remaining sugar, 1 cup at a time, beating well (about 2 minutes) after each addition, until the icing is thick enough for good spreading consistency (you may not need all of the sugar).
    5. 5
      If desired, add a few drops of food coloring and mix thoroughly.
    6. 6
      Use and store the icing at room temperature because icing will set if chilled.
    7. 7
      The icing can be stored in an airtight container for up to 3 days.
    8. 8
      **If making a 3-layer cake, use the following proportions: 1 1/2 cups unsalted butter, 8-10 cups confectioner's sugar, 3/4 cup milk, and 1 tablespoon vanilla extract.

      Very simple and held up well. I substituted lemon juice for the milk for a very lemony icing, and it was great. Much simpler than the double boiler/egg varieties.

      YUMMY! I could eat this entire batch straight from the mixer! I suggest adding seeds from 1 to 2 vanilla pods for a natural vanilla flavor.
