1 lb. Unsalted sweet cream butter (softened)
8 c. powdered sugar
1 tsp. Madagascan bourbon vanilla
1/4 c. milk or cream
Add powdered sugar one cup at a time
Add milk one tablespoon at a time until you get the consistency you want.
If you're not going to use it right away cover with a damp papertowel or plastic wrap.
To store overnight, I recommend vacuum-sealing it and refrigerating it.
Let sit out for a few hours before use after refrigerating.
For cream cheese frosting substitute 2 - 8oz blocks of cream cheese. Do not use low fat or fat-free cream cheese
