  1. Place the butter and peanut butter into a medium bowl, and beat with an electric mixer. Gradually mix in the sugar, and when it starts to get thick, incorporate milk one tablespoon at a time until all of the sugar is mixed in and the frosting is thick and spreadable. Beat for at least 3 minutes for it to get good and fluffy.

Make sure you use butter rather than margarine. I've used margarine before and the icing comes out kind of greasy. Butter will give you beautiful, fluffy icing. Also, I add 2 tsp of vanilla when...

Great multi-purpose frosting. Worked well for piping too. Had some left over, chilled it rolled it into balls and dipped in melted chocolate. You have to keep them in the fridge but they are ...

My sister found a box of chocolate cake mix in Mom's pantry today...and decided she needed cupcakes right then! Of course, she didn't look for frosting when she found the cake mix...so we tried...

Oh my gosh, as I sit here licking the spatula and swiping my finger into the almost empty bowl, thank you, thank you, thank you for this great recipe. I had no problems spreading the icing or m...
