1. Beat the butter and vanilla together on medium speed for 30 seconds.
2. Keep beating while you add 2 cups of the sugar then the 2 Tbsp of milk.
3. Beat in the remaining sugar and then the remaining milk beating until you reach the desired consistency.
4. Divide the frosting in thirds. Color one blue, one red, and leave the final third white.
This is the simplest frosting recipe you'll ever find. Of course, it works just as well all white, or tinted green for St. Patrick's day, or red and green for Christmas. Once you know this recipe, you're set for any holiday! (Blue for baby boy shower... pink for baby girl shower... you get the point)
