frosting is from my 1974 Betty Crocker Cookbook.
In a mixer, beat:
5 Tbsp butter or margarine, softened
3 c confectioner sugar
1 1/2 tsp vanilla

Add milk slowly until it's smooth & spreading
Fills & frosts 2 9" layers or a 13x9 cake.
- Browned Butter Frosting: same as above,
except heat butter in saucepan over medium
heat until a delicate brown.

chopped maraschino cherries & 2 drops red

orange juice for the milk, add 2 tsp grated

the butter, increase milk to 1/4 to 1/3 cup.
