Recipe Yields: Icing for one 9-inch layer cake
You can't find a more scrumptous vanilla buttercream icing than this one! The longer you beat it, the more delicious it gets. It goes beautifully with the Devil's Food Cake.
1 cup unsalted butter, room temp.
6-8 cups confectioners sugar
1/2 cup milk
2 teaspoons vanilla
Add butter, milk, vanilla and 4 cups of sugar together and mix with electric mixer for 5 minutes.
Gradually add the remaining sugar until the icing is thick enough to spread. You may not need all of the sugar.
