Peppermint Flavored Frosting
3 cups of powdered sugar- confectioner’s sugar
1 stick of unsalted butter- room temperature
6 tablespoons skim milk-cold
1 tablespoon of peppermint extract
Desired food dye/coloring- or none at all for white frosting
Mix together the butter with the sugar.
Then slowly, one tablespoon at a time, add in the milk. With each tablespoon let it incorporate fully before moving onto the next one.
This photo below is the desired consistency.
Once you’ve gotten the frosting to the perfect consistency add in the food dye.
For this pink I added in two drops of red dye.
You are now ready to frost!
*Using disposable decorating bags makes this messy job super easy and neat! I highly recommend investing in a pack. Scoop the frosting then load up a bag, and clip the cone end and you’re frosting!
