Step 1

In a large bowl, beat butter at medium speed with an electric mixer until creamy. Gradually beat in 4 cups sugar, until smooth. Beat in milk and vanilla, beating until combined. Gradually beat in enough sugar until a spreadable consistency is reached (may not need all sugar). Add 1-2 drops of food coloring, if desired.
