Did you know making your own cake frosting is a breeze?  We make our own for most of our cakes using this simple recipe.

Creamy Butter Frosting

Chocolate Frosting Variation

Preparation:

  1. Cream butter, salt, and vanilla, beating until light and fluffy.
  2. Add sugar gradually, beating after each addition.
  3. Add 3 tablespoons milk, beating until smooth. Beat in more milk until desired spreading consistency is reached.

Makes about 2 1/3 cups of frosting, enough to frost tops and sides of of an 8-inch 2-layer cake or a 10-inch tube or bundt cake, or about 1 dozen cupcakes.

You can make just about any flavor or consistency you want. Use it to frost a funfetti cake from scratch [4]!
