This simple recipe can be used to ice cupcakes and to sandwich cake layers together.
1. Beat the butter, 2 tbsp milk, and the vanilla in a large bowl with an electric mixer until smooth.
2. With the mixer on low speed, gradually add the confectioner's sugar, beating until the frosting is spreadable. If the frosting is too stiff, add the remaining milk.
Prepare ahead: The icing can be refrigerated in a covered container for 2 days. Bring to room temperature before using. If too stiff to spread, stir in a little extra milk.
