- powdered sugar
- butter or margarine
- some milk-like liquid
- vanilla extract
- food coloring (optional)
Start with the wet ingredients. Don't use very much to start. You can always use more, but never less (and it doesn't take much)!
Add some powdered sugar. Use your hand mixer to mix it up until it looks spreadable but not too runny. This isn't rocket science. Don't stress exact amounts.
If you want your cake to look extra fun, add lots of crazy food coloring like I did:
Spread on your cake. Display...
...and then consume.
