Thick Vanilla Frosting


1 cup shortening
2 teaspoons vanilla
4 cups powdered sugar (sifted)
4 tablespoons milk


Beat together shortening and vanilla for 30 seconds medium speed with an electric mixer.

Add 2 cups of powdered sugar a bit at a time while beating.

Then add 2 tablespoons milk.

Slowly add in the rest of the powdered sugar and the rest of the milk until you get the right thickness for your frosting.

Add different colored sprinkles or food coloring if you’d like to add some color! 

This is the perfect frosting to top any desert-my favorite are mini vanilla cupcakes 😛  This recipe is so quick adn easy.  My 7 year old cousin made it by herself, and it was delicious.  So I tried it and I fell in love.

Chocolate Butter Frosting


1/2 cup butter
1/4 cup cocoa powder
1/3 cup milk
2 cups powdered sugar (sifted)
1/2 cup chopped nuts (pecans are nice)


Heat butter, cocoa, and milk and bring to a boil.

Add powdered sugar and beat until nice and smooth.

Add chopped nuts and stir.

This is great frosting for the holidays-it is perfect for christmas cupcakes or any other occasion!

Quick and Easy Powdered Sugar Icing

2 cups powdered sugar (sifted)
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
2 tablespoons milk


Mix the powdered sugar with the vanilla and milk.

Then add more milk a bit at a time until it is thin enough to drizzle over a cake.

Once you’ve iced your cake, it’s best to let it stand for one or two hours.

 I love this frosting on lemon cookies-it makes them very sweet.

To make chocolate icing, add two tablespoons cocoa powder when you mix the powdered sugar and follow the rest of the recipe above.
