This is what I do on Monday nights when I am bored. Actually, these are a test for the big BABY shower extravaganza this weekend. These are the mini version, I think they turned out pretty dang cute.
Here is my recipe for quick and EASY buttercreme frosting, just throw it all into the Kitchen Aid and whip it up:
1 stick unsalted butter
1 teaspoon of the best vanilla you can find
3 1/2 cups confectioners sugar
2-3 tablespoons of milk or cream
food coloring (I use the gel, you may need to lessen the milk if you use the liquid)
