This icing pairs well with the "feather light vanilla cupcakes" that I posted a few days ago. It's not too sweet and the perfect consistency for icing cupcakes. It makes enough to ice a large cake as well.
260g icing sugar, sifted
110g butter, at room temperature
1/4 tsp vanilla essence
2 tbsp milk
Beat together the icing sugar, butter, vanilla and milk until smooth and creamy. Spread on top of cake and decorate to your desire!
