Butter Cream Icing


The icing on the cake … yea … this is it. I have known children—I happened to be one—who ate the icing and not the cake. SAM

3/4 cup confectioner’s sugar
3 tablespoons butter, softened
1 1/2 teaspoons heavy cream plus additional if necessary
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

In a mixer bowl on high speed, beat confectioner’s sugar, butter, cream, and vanilla extract until smooth. If necessary for easy spreading, add additional lemon juice 1 teaspoon at a time.
Makes 1 cup or enough for one 9 x 5-inch loaf pan.
