Vanilla Buttercream Frosting

1/2 lb. confectioners' sugar
2/3 cup butter, at room temperature
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla paste
A few drops of food coloring (optional)

In a large bowl, beat together sugar, butter, vanilla, and food coloring until smooth. If necessary, add a few drops of milk until frosting is spreading consistency.

My thoughts:
An easy buttercream that has some flecks of vanilla bean it. The yield is just enough to frost 12 cupcakes or one 8 inch round single layer cake.
