Homemade Frosting

I experimented with homemade frosting the other day. I always thought making home made frosting was hard but its actually really easy. My first batch started out more like a glaze than a frosting but then I found this really easy recipe.

1 Stick butter
3 Cups Confectioners’ sugar
1 tsp. vanilla extract
3 tbsp. milk
Food coloring

Cream 1 stick of softened butter and 3 cups of confectioners sugar

Add 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract and 3 tablespoons of milk, then cream until smooth. Add desired food coloring.


Total time to make frosting was less than five minutes

We had all these items on hand except the sugar which cost less than $2 on Meijer and will make many more batches of frosting. I love being able to say I made homemade frosting and it was cheaper to make than to buy it.
