Makes enough for 1 cake
|1/4 cup ||60 mL ||butter|
|1/4 cup ||60 mL ||milk|
|3 cups ||750 mL ||icing sugar|
|3 tsp ||15 mL ||vanilla extract|
|3 tsp ||15 mL ||maple extract|
|1 tsp ||5 mL ||coconut extract|
|1 tsp ||5 mL ||almond extract|
|1/4 tsp ||1 mL ||orange extract|
Note: Only use one flavor (or reduce the amounts porportionately). The quantities listed here reflect their relative strengths.
- Soften the butter in the microwave for about 30 seconds. If it melts a bit, that is not problem.
- Add the milk and flavor to the butter and mix them together with the beaters.
- Add the rest of the icing sugar a bit at a time. After adding each portion, beat it until the icing sugar is all absorbed. If you add too much loose icing sugar at once, it will fly around and make a mess.
- You can also add food colouring to icing. Add a few drops of the colour you want, beat it up, and them add more drops if you want darker shade. Do this at the end because adding more icing sugar will dilute the colour. Red is the strongest colour and yellow is the weakest.
