Tessa is Steve's oldest daughter. I giggled when Libby said that Tessa's was so much prettier than hers. I said I couldn't even remember what color hers was. She reminded me... brown. Ha! She requested Chocolate frosting. ;)
Our favorite Butter Cream Frosting:
1 cup salted butter
3 cups powdered sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 Tbls milk
Cream the butter until fluffy. Add the powdered sugar and continue creaming until well blended. Add the vanilla and milk and blend on low speed for 2 minutes. (Add additional milk if needed by the teaspoons.) Beat at high speed until the frosting is fluffy.
*It's the only time I ever buy salted butter and I always double this recipe. I usually have some left over, but I found there is nothing worse than trying to ice a cake with a minimal amount of frosting. For a chocolate frosting add 1/2 cup cocoa powder and 2 tsp of milk.
