  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 3 tablespoons cream (see tips for subs)


  • add vanilla to sugar
  • add cream gradually
  • beat until the right consistency for spreading


  • To color: divide into portions and follow the coloring directions
  • Allow time to set so cookies don’t stick together when storing
  • Separate cookie layers with waxed paper for best results
  • For softer frosting add 1/4 cup butter or margarine and reduce cream to 2 tablespoons
