  2. Frosting: 1 1/2 Cups Butter, 6 Cups powdered sugar, 1/3 Cup of Milk and 2 teaspoons Vanilla. Beat butter until fluffy, gradually beat in powdered sugar.

Alternately spoon heaping tablespoons of green and orange frosting into pastry bag with medium size tip. Gently press sides of pastry bag to blend colors slightly.
