    FROSTING About 1 tbsp of soft butter About 2 cups of confectionary sugar ( mix this a little before you but the milk in ) With the milk , put a little in at a time until you get the right consistency that you are looking for. Make sure it’s a little bit at a time, because the confectionary sugar really soaks it up fast. Obviously, if you put to much milk it, just add more confectionary sugar. Enjoy!!!!!!!!!! Just to let you know, this amount doesn’t make much frosting. Depending on what your frosting , you probably will have to double or triple these amounts.
