DESSERT: Frosty the Cupcake-man

This vanilla frosting is a great basic, and you can use it on cake, cupcakes, or on your french toast...yum.  Refer to my notes on butter substitutes before you begin, and be sure to use a mixer.

Serving Size: Frosts 1-2 dozen (double the ingredients if you want thick frosting) cupcakes or a small cake

Ingredients:
  • 1/2 cup low-far butter
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 3 1/2-4 cups ground brown sugar or stevia (substitute for confectioners sugar, but you must be sure to grind the sugar well)
  • 1/4 cup skim milk
Instructions:
  • Beat the butter until it is fluffy
  • Add in the sugar and continue to beat the butter and sugar together
  • Add in the milk, extract, and salt
  • Continue to beat until your mixture is light and fluffy
  • You're done - enjoy!
