An easy vanilla buttercream icing to whip up for birthday cakes or cupcakes. If you colour this icing you may need to add more icing sugar.
Use about half the quantity to cover a 25cm diameter cake about 1cm thick. A little more milk helps, especially to dissolve the copious amount of icing sugar. Tastes nice once done! - 23 Jul 2017

I made two batches. One following the exact recipe, and one with all butter. Defenitely use all butter, the icing turns out just as nice and there is no shortening taste. - 12 Nov 2006 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
