I made my own frosting not too long ago. I made enough that I saved the rest in a sealed container to use up until it was gone. I used the last of it a couple weeks ago.

With my daughter's birthday next week I was making sure I had all the ingredients to make cupcakes for her class. Well, thinking I had the recipe for the frosting written down somewhere, or bookmarked on the computer or something, I looked & realized I had it nowhere.

The children really liked it, so I figured it would be kid-approved in her classroom as well. I tried searching online to see if I could remember what site I got it from to begin with but no luck yet. Oh well, there are others I can try.

 I should mention too that the frosting I posted is very light and fluffy, very creamy, buttery...but not sickeningly sweet like a lot of icings. 

I always thought it was most delicious on a stronger flavored cake, like devils's food.
