Easy Vanilla Icing

by Liz

This is the best recipe for an easy vanilla icing. It is suitable for most cakes,cupcakes and biscuits and does not involve using the mixer.


The ingredients are pantry basics so I can make this icing with a moment's notice.

2 cups powdered (icing) sugar
2 tablespoons butter or margarine, softened
2 tablespoons milk
1/2 teaspoon vanilla


Combine ingredients in a small bowl and mix with a fork until smooth and fluffy.

If you want chocolate icing, you can add 1 tablespoon of cocoa to the other ingredients.

Turned out great NEW
by: Anonymous

I used my electric stand mixer with the wire whisk attachment and it turned out perfect consistency. I used margarine though because I'm lactose intolerant. Very smooth and just right.

It turned out great for me after reading the other comments I changed it a little. I used 1 tsp of vanilla, 2 tbsp of milk and only 1 tbsp of melted butter.

How could you make this runny NEW
by: Black Jack Shellac

If your recipe turned out runny, you're obviously not following directions. Worked perfectly for me, indeed, mine was a bit thick so I had to add another tsp of milk to get it to whip.

Tip if you don't want it runny. NEW
by: Anonymous

Some people here are saying their icing turns out runny, if you don't want your to be the same, dont add the milk until the end, and only add it if it's a little too thick. I just left it out completely and it turned out great.

This recipe is great. I was expecting something over poweringly sweet. It was a little runny so I had to add some extra icing sugar, but aside from that, it's great! I made brownies and used this icing on them and everybody love it. I got asked for the icing recipe almost as much as the brownie one!

Great recipe but...
by: Crystal

This is an amazing recipe, however I had to add more milk and vanilla. This recipe calls for 2 tbsp of milk, and I had to add 1 tsp extra of milk to make this recipe more smooth. With just adding the recommended amount of milk, it was like working with clay. I actually put a dent in my palm from trying to stir. Other than its a great recipe. Its easy and quick and tastes really good.

So easy......
by: Janet

I made cupcakes but didn't have any frosting on hand. Decided to Google it and saw this site. What's best is that this did not require a mixer. Perfect since I didn't want to take it out and clean it again. Mixed by hand and the icing came out great!
