 Frosting :

1.   In an electric mixer or with a hand mixer, cream the butter until smooth.
2.   Gradually beat in the white sugar with the mixer on low speed.  Scrape the sides of the bowl when needed.
3.   Add the milk and beat on high speed until frosting is light and fluffy (4 minutes) 
4.   Check the consistency of the frosting, add a little more milk or sugar when required.
5.   Tint the frosting with your desired food color.  I used the gel type food color here.

I prefer to use gel type food color because colors are vibrant
