Buttercream Icing for Cake / Cookie Deco

From Dorothy McNett's recipes at www.dorothymcnett.com. This can be made using a spoon instead of electric mixer but it will not be as smooth and fluffy.

1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract or vanila bean paste
4 1/2 cups sifted confectioners sugar
3-4 (perhaps more) tablespoons milk or cream

Using electric beater, cream the butter Add vanilla. Gradually add sugar, one cup at a time,beating well on medium speed. Scrape sides and bottom of bowl often. When all sugar has been mixed in, icing will appear dry. Add milk and beat at medium speed until light and fluffy, adding enough milk to get a desired spreading consistency.
