Vanilla - Chocolate Powdered Sugar Frosting
June 02, 2010

Powdered sugar frosting, basic buttercream frosting, whatever you want to call it this recipe has the perfect proportions of butter to powdered sugar. I made the vanilla version and didn't measure the milk, just added enough to get the consistency I wanted. For novice cooks, it is important to cream the butter and sugar well, a good few minutes, until it is very light and fluffy! Update 11-19-12: The chocolate variation of this recipe, while fluffy and delicious, is a very LIGHT chocolate. If you like it darker, replace some of the powdered sugar with more cocoa powder.
