Step By Step With Photos

Melt butter. I do this in a small bowl in the microwave, starting with 30 seconds at a time, stirring each time.

In a large mixing bowl, add the powdered sugar, vanilla, milk and melted butter.

Beat well with a handheld mixer until well combined.

Add more milk depending on the consistency you would like.
