250g / 1 Cup Butter
375g 3 Cups Icing Sugar
30ml / 2 Tablespoons Milk

Add room temperature butter to a bowl. Beat the butter for 5 minutes until it has become light and airy, doubled in size and lost most of it’s colour. Start adding the icing sugar half a cup at a time, beating for about a minute in between each addition. Use the milk to thin out the consistency of the icing, add it a teaspoon at a time. This is also the time to add any flavourings or colourings that you would like. This icing can last in the fridge for a few weeks or the freezer for 3 months. When you are ready to use just let it get back up to room temperature.
