This is a recipe that I made recently and wanted to share with you guys. I got this from my mother-in-law and it didn’t have all the measurements but I think I came close. This is a sweet icing but paired with a white cake this works great.
I made the icing a little thinner so that it would drip down all sides which left a mess on the plate. This is a delicious cake and my husband couldn’t wait to take a piece.
2 sticks of butter
2 lbs. confectioners’ sugar
3 tbsp. of Can milk
½ tsp Vanilla
Put the butter in a pan and brown but careful not to burn it. Take off heat and let the butter cool.
Put the confectioners’ sugar in a bowl and slowly pour in the butter. Mix until well incorporated.
Add in the milk one tablespoon at a time until you get the consistency you want.
Add in the vanilla for flavoring.
Spread the frosting on each layer and then on top and sides.
Use a white cake for best results.
The cake was just a box. I didn’t feel like doing the cake from scratch this time.
