RULE OF 3 FROSTING
Rule of 3 frosting
- Cooking Time: 0
- Servings: Varied
- Preparation Time: 5
- 3 c powdered sugar
- 3 T milk
- 3 T butter, softened
- 1 1/2 t vanilla
- food colouring (optional)
Mix everything together in a medium bowl. Seriously, that's it.
If the butter gets clumpy when combined with the cold milk, pop it in the microwave until it softens again.
Stir until smooth in consistency.
If using as a glaze, add milk until thin enough to pour.
If using as a cake or cupcake frosting, and it seems too thin, let set in the open until the surface hardens. When you stir the mixture together again, it will thicken.
If using as cookie frosting, divide into separate bowls and colour individually.
This also works great for decorating gingerbread men. Dump it into a sandwich bag, cut a small bit off of a bottom corner, and voila! Instant piping bag! Also a great activity for families since you can give each kid their own decorating bag.
