Makes 1.5 cups of frosting
  • ½ cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1½ tsp vanilla extract
  • 3 cups confectioners sugar
  • 2-3 tablespoons milk
  • Juice from one lemon
  1. Cream room temperature butter with a hand mixer, the paddle attachment of a stand mixer, or a wooden spoon until smooth and fluffy. Gradually beat in confectioners' sugar until fully incorporated. Beat in vanilla extract. Add milk and lemon juice, and beat for an additional 3-4 minutes.
