This is the easiest buttercream frosting you will ever make.. this is the way my grandmother taught me to remember
It's call 1+2=3 .. she got tired of me calling her for the right proportions and this is the only way I can remember it..

this makes enough to frost a two layer cake or on large cake and a bunch of cupcakes... please don't ask me how many.. my grandies tend to eat the cupcakes as fast as they get frosted...
