What is the most easy frosting to make and what is the recipe?

I think the question says it all. Thanks.

Cream cheese icing is very easy, yummy and pretty much foolproof!


Just cream cheese, butter, powdered sugar and vanilla.

powered sugar (icing sugar in UK) and cold water - you don't need much.
Glacé icing, yes I agree, can't get much simpler. Be warned it goes from too stiff, to too runny very easily, so be very mean with the water.
Butter + powdered sugar + a few drops of vanilla or other flavoring + milk

Different ratios will give different textures. I usually just go by eye & taste. Start with a stick (4 oz or 120 grams) of butter, blend with 1-2 cups of powdered sugar, then gradually add the liquid until it is creamy and spreadable. A little milk goes a long way, don't add too much at a time or you will have runny glaze rather than frosting.

The kind that comes in a can that sits on the shelf next to cake mixes in the supermarket.
