How to Make Homemade Vanilla Frosting from Scratch
This is a great quick and easy recipe and a great healthy alternative to store-bought frosting. My husband and children love this frosting, and it's also a hit at my PTA meetings. It goes great on cakes, cupcakes, cookies, or anything you desire to put frosting on.
I made this recipe because I wanted to limit the amount of preservatives I feed my family. I love making things from scratch that can be made healthier at home. It also tastes much better than anything I have tried off the shelf. I find that to be true with everything I make from scratch with more natural ingredients.
You don't have to use organic ingredients. I don't, but you can if you desire.
