     Vanilla Buttercream Icing

Category   Desserts - Breads
Sub Category   None
Servings   24 cupcakes
Preptime   15 minutes

Ingredients
1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, softened
6-8 cups confectioner's sugar
1/2 cup milk or cream
2 tsp vanilla extract
3 tbsp all-purpose flour
salt to taste
 

Instructions
Place the butter in a large mixing bowl. Add 4 cups of the sugar and then the milk and vanilla. On the medium speed of an electric mixer, beat until smooth and creamy, about 3 to 5 minutes. Gradually add the remaining sugar, 1 cup at a time, beating well after each addition (about 2 minutes), until the icing is thick enough to be of good spreading consistency. You may not need to add all of the sugar.
I've added to this recipe the flour and salt because I saw it in another recipe and I think it makes the icing taste even better. Add the flour after you've added the sugar (I usually use about 7 cups), and then sprinkle the batter with a little bit of salt to enhance the flavor of the buttercream.
If desired, add a few drops of food coloring and mix thoroughly. (Use and store the icing at room temperature because icing will set if chilled.) Icing can be stored in an airtight container for up to 3 days.
