2 Tablespoons softened Butter
1 whole egg OR 2 egg yolks
A few grains of salt
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 cups confectioner’s sugar
about 2 teaspoons milk
Put first four ingredients in a bowl and mix with an electric mixer
until creamy. Add sugar and enough milk to allow the frosting to
spread easily. Makes frosting for a two layer 9 inch cake.
For chocolate icing:
Add 1 square of melted unsweetened baking chocolate to the butter/egg
mixture before adding the sugar.
Increase the butter by 1 tablespoon and add 3 tablespoons of cocoa
with the sugar.
It’s much cheaper than the canned stuff, and tastes better too. You
can add fruit jellies/preserves to the butter/egg mixture for flavored
cakes as well.
