Butter Frosting    or                                   1.5 times recipe

6 TB butter                                                    9
TB butter (1 stick plus 1 TB)
2 cups powdered sugar                                 3 cups powdered sugar
4 TB milk, divided                                        6 TB
milk, divided  
1 ½ tsp. Vanilla                                             2  1/4  tsp. vanilla
In a large mixing bowl cream
butter till light and fluffy.  Gradually
add half the powdered sugar, beating well. 
Beat in 2 TB milk and the vanilla. 
Gradually add the remaining powdered sugar, beating constantly.  Beat in enough milk to make frosting of
spreading consistency.  If adding liquid
for color, such as juice from frozen strawberries or raspberries, sub the juice
for the milk until you reach the desired color. 

Note:  You can buy a bunny shaped cake pan and
plastic googly eyes at Wal-Mart. (craft section).  Grease generously with oil and flour.

The frosting is a little thin because of all the butter so it’s easiest to make the cake in a pan instead of a layer cake, but a layer cake is still doable. Or you could use chocolate frosting instead.

Here’s a bunny cake I made for my son’s 2nd birthday.
