Ingredients:  
2 sticks (226g) unsalted butter, softened (do not soften butter in the microwave)
6 c. confectioners sugar (icing sugar) (690) grams) or more if needed. ** For cupcakes, I like to use 5 c. (675g) for a softer frosting
1 c. cocoa, sifted (86 grams) measure then sift
1/3 c. milk (75 grams) more if needed to reach the spreading consistency you like
2 teaspoons vanilla (8 grams)

Directions:
Directions:
Add butter and beat for approxiamtely 1 min. on medium speed. Add vanilla and blend into the butter. Add powdered sugar and cocoa powder. Add most of the milk. Begin beating at low speed so you won't have a cloud of powdered sugar in your kitchen. Beat at medium speed 1 minute. Reduce speed to low and beat an additional two to three minutes, adding remaining milk as needed.

This recipe makes approximately 4 cups of frosting.
