Frosting:
3 cups powdered sugar

1-1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1-2 tablespoons milk

Mix in your powdered sugar, butter and vanilla together. Stir in 1 tablespoon of milk with this and gradually add more until your frosting has the constancy that you are looking for. The less milk you use the thicker your frosting will be consequently the more milk you use the thinner your frosting will be.
