Classic White Icing

This is the recipe I use for my classic white icing.  It is not super sweet, the salt cuts down on the sweetness.  It contains Karo syrup which helps to make it smooth and creamy.

2 softened sticks of unsalted butter
3 cups of powdered sugar
1/4 teaspoon of salt
1 tablespoon of vanilla extract (I use my homemade recipe)
1/4 cup of milk
1 tablespoon of light Karo syrup

Using a mixer, first cream the softened butter in a bowl. 

Add in powdered sugar and continue to mix.

Then add in vanilla, salt and milk and mix until all ingredients are well mixed and your icing is a smooth consistency.

This icing is great for cupcakes, but I also used it for the "B" cake I made, found here.
