  • Servings



  • 1

    cup unsalted butter (2 sticks), softened – not melted

  • 3

    cups confectioners (powdered) sugar, SIFTED

  • ¼

    teaspoon table salt

  • 1

    tablespoon vanilla extract

  • up to 4 tablespoons milk


Start by beating the butter in a mixer with the paddle attachment on medium speed until the butter has broken down and begins to look whipped. -Stop the mixer and add in your sifted powdered sugar. Cover your mixer and bowl with a towel and turn your mixer on the lowest speed for 30 seconds to a minute. (This keeps the powdered sugar from poofing up in your face and all over your counter!) -Increase the speed to medium and add the vanilla, salt, and 2 tbsp. of the milk. Beat for 3 minutes on medium. You’re done! Need thicker icing? Add more powdered sugar a tablespoon at a time
