Here is another one of those great recipes – if you know this one, you can make variations of it and it will feel like a different things every single time! I have added the variations below the recipe – but if you try other ideas, let me know and I will gladly add them to the list!

1/4 cup of butter

1 egg

2-1/2 tp 2-3/4 cups of sifted icing sugar

1 teaspoon of vanilla

Cream butter well, stir in the egg. Add sugar, little at a time, beating until light and fluffy. Stir in vanilla.

This amount is good enough for a large layer cake.


Chocolate frosting: Melt 2 squares of unsweetened chocolate. Cool slightly and beat into the above icing.

Orange frosting: Omit vanilla. Add 2 tablespoons of orange juice and 1 tablespoon of grated orange rind to above icing. Add more icing sugar if necessary.

Mocha frosting: Increase icing sugar to 3 -3-1/4 cups. Stir in 2 tablespoons of cocoa. Beat in strong, cold coffee, little at a time, until the frosting is soft enough to spread. 1 tablespoon of dry instant coffee with butter. Reduce vanilla to 1/2 teaspoon.

Coffee frosting: Cream 1 teaspoon of dry instant coffee with butter. Reduce vanilla to 1/2 teaspoon.
