      A great standard frosting recipe. It was the perfect amount to frost decorate a little cake I made for my niece to smash into for her first birthday! I think this will be my go-to recipe for frosting sugar cookies.

      A really good little frosting recipe.
      I went with the lemon variation on DD's instructions ( although I really wanted chocolate or peanut butter!). It was a great choice though..the lemon cut through the sweetness of the icing sugar and the richness of the butter just perfectly, without being too tart.
      Can't wait to try the others now...
      Made for PRMR.
