Way Too Much Fun

How did I spend ALL of Gabbi's nap-time today?
Did I have other things I probably should have accomplished?
Decorating cupcakes = My new favorite past-time.
I got a decorating kit with a coupon at Michaels, this recipe from my visiting teacher, and went crazy.

Vanilla Buttercream Frosting
Betty Crocker Cookbook, thanks to Cady Jardine's suggestion
Prep:10 min, 12 servings, about 1 3/4 cups of frosting

3 cups powdered sugar
1/3 cup butter or margarine, softened
1 1/2 tsp vanilla
1 to 2 Tbl milk

1. In a medium bowl, mix powdered sugar and butter with a spoon or electric mixer on low speed. Stir in vanilla nd 1 Tbl of the milk.
2. Gradually beat in just enough remaining milk to make frosting smooth and spreadable. If frosting is too thick, beat in more milk, a few drops at a time. If frosting becomes too thin, beat in a small amount of powdered sugar. Frost 13 x 9 cake generously or fills and frosts and 8 or 9 inch 2 layer cake.
