A quick and easy way to make fruit flavored "buttercream" frosting- without using fruit.
|* ½ cup (1 stick) butter or margarine, softened|
|* 4½ - 5 cups powdered sugar|
|* ¼ cup milk|
|* .13 oz. packet KOOL-AID Sugar-Sweetened Soft Drink Mix, in flavor of your choice|
|* 1 tsp. vanilla extract|
1. Cream butter in the bowl of a mixer. 2. Add sugar and milk gradually, beating well after each addition. 3. Add vanilla extract, and mix until its fully incorporated. 4. Add Kool-Aid by the ¼ teaspoon and mix thoroughly, until flavoring is to your satisfaction (or just dump the entire packet in if you like super-sweet high intensity flavor). 5. Mix on low speed and make sure its well blended. 6. Use on cooled cupcakes. 7. Enjoy!
