See that yummy looking frosting? It was super easy and super delicious! Last week I made treats for Drumline/Flags/Band Camp and was actually going to be a cheater and use canned frosting I had bought for 25 cents after Easter. Bad news- I opened up the container to see my son had at some pointed opened it and put a huge finger swipe in it. I'm guessing it was several months ago by the way the frosting looked! Good news, I made this yummy frosting. See how great it pipes? This is my new "go to" frosting recipe! I even used it on Chase's birthday cake.
Cream softened butter in stand mixer (or use a hand mixer) until smooth and fluffy. Mix in vanilla and milk. Slowly beat in powdered sugar until smooth and stiff enough to pipe (It took me 3/4 bag of powdered sugar). If you are wanting colored frosting mix it in now and beat until smooth and evenly colored.
I'm a previous stay-at-home mom of 8 years who joined the working world again as the Food Service Director over our local school district and a high school lunch lady. I have 3 kiddies. Makayla (Miss Picky Pants) is 14, Sophie (Worm) is 13 and Chase's 9. I LOVE to cook! If you're looking for plain ol' mom food... you're in the right place! I'm always looking to cook up new recipes and simple, inexpensive meals. My goal's to share old favorites and to make new ones. Thanks to everyone who stops by and visits my blog! You inspire me to keep posting (even when I have a difficult time managing my time!)
