Powdered Sugar Frosting Recipe
  • 2 1/2 Cups powdered sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons water
  • 1 Tablespoon light corn syrup
  • 1 Tablespoon softened butter
  • 1 Tablespoon vanilla extract
  • Food coloring to tint
Assemble all of the ingredients listed above in the recipe. Place all in a medium sized bowl and mix with a hand mixer until all is combined.
The frosting is ready after all ingredients have been incorporated. If the frosting is too thick, add a teaspoon of water until it reaches the desired consistency.
Drop a few drops of food coloring into the prepared frosting and stir thoroughly to give it a color. Use one drop for a light color and four or more drops if a darker color is desired.
This recipe works well for frosting sugar cookies, cup cakes and brownies and can be easily doubled if needed.
