Buttercream Frosting

I THINK I got this from a copycat for Magnolia Bakery Buttercream, but then modified a tiny bit. Maybe? It's a pretty basic buttercream.

Ingredients

1 c
butter (not margarine)
8 c
confectioner's sugar
1/2 c
milk
2 1/2 tsp
vanilla

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Place butter in mixing bowl, add 4 cups of the sugar and then the milk and vanilla, beat until smooth and creamy. Gradually add the remaining sugar, 1 cup at a time, until icing is thick enough to be of good spreading consistency (you may not need all of the sugar).
2
Use and store icing at room temperature, as icing will set if chilled. You can store in an airtight container for up to three days.
