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

I think the question says it all. Thanks.



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.
