Vanilla Buttercream

1 cup unsalted butter, softened OR 100% vegetable oil solid margarine*, softened
4 cups icing sugar, sifted
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon vanilla
4 tablespoons milk

1. Cream butter or margarine until smooth. Stir in salt, vanilla, and milk along with 1 cup icing sugar. Blend in remaining icing sugar.
2. For best keeping, store in airtight container in fridge.

*I've been using margarine lately in my buttercreams, I find it not only tastes just as good, but also it's cheaper and as great to use as butter.

Campfire cupcakes! Super cute and fun to make.
