buttercream frosting

Vancouver, BC, Canada



Hi everyone!
My classes have finished now, and I have a few weeks of absolutely no plans. So, I have been spending my days binge-watching The Mindy Project.

You know, shows like Friends and The Mindy Project really make me want to live in New York. And have a really nice apartment. But I'd literally need to be the CEO of Goldman Sachs to afford a house like that.

Anyway, yesterday I was watching the episode with Mindy and Casey's engagement party (not a spoiler, its season one and it was released like 5 years ago), and there's one scene with a huge cake, which made me crave cake, so I made cupcakes along with my own frosting.

The frosting is simple, actually, but I wanted to post it here anyway, in case anyone wants to use it 
and also so it's somewhere for me to find in the future.

Heads up, if you do make this it is really sweet and like one cupcake with this frosting will be enough sugar for a whole week.

Ingredients
2 mini sticks of butter (about 1 cup)
4 cups of icing sugar
1 tbsp vanilla extract
1 tbsp milk

Method
In a stand-up mixer, or with a hand-mixer, soften the butter before adding the icing sugar. It should be dry when it's mixed properly. Once the two are mixed, add in the vanilla extract, and add a little bit of milk until it's the right consistency.
