You will need:
- 500g confectioners sugar
- 250g butter
- dash of vanilla
Leave the butter out to soften and you can judge when its ready. Then mix the confectioners sugar, butter, and a teensy bit of vanilla to add some flavour together. Add small portions of milk as you go until your frosting is the right consistency. And thats all there is to it!!! (for best results, frost soon after you mix this so that the frosting doesn't dry up before even getting on a cupcake)
This is the frosting I use - you can just pour in the whole thing! You can find it at Tesco, Sainsbury's, and I'm pretty sure Waitrose too!!!
This is the butter I use. Once again, you can just use the whole cube. And I got it at Tesco!
