Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
This recipe is on the back of C&H 1 lb. box of powdered sugar. It is not only great on cakes, it makes a good frosting on sugar cookies. Think pink for Valentine's Day....red & green sprinkles for Christmas...pale yellow or blue for Easter! Sometimes I use almond extract for a wonderful flavor instead of vanilla.
