I am one lucky girl. For my birthday my husband got me a Silhouette Craft cutter, sent this beautiful bouquet of flowers to me during the day, and then took me out to Sushi for dinner.
2/3 cup Butter
1 cup Packed Brown Sugar
1/3 Cup Milk (though any cream will make this even better)
4+ Cups Powdered Sugar
Melt butter over medium-low heat. Once melted stir in Brown Sugar until well combined and continue to cook for 2 minutes. Add Milk and bring to boil. This may happen very quickly so watch closely! Turn off heat immediately and let this mixture cool. Once cool, use a hand mixer or whisk to slowly add powdered sugar until you have a nice thick frosting consistency. If you start to add the Powdered Sugar before your butter mixture is completely cool, be careful you do not add too much sugar.
**As you can see in my picture, I wasn't patient enough and added a bit too much powdered sugar making my frosting very hard to spread on my cake. It tastes delicious either way, but if you're going for a beautiful even frosting, wait for the butter mixture to come to room temperature, and add the powdered sugar slowly. I had a few little hands helping to pour in the sugar as fast as they could...
The next time I make this cake, which has been requested by the older two for their birthday, I may try to sprinkle a bit of high quality sea salt over the top. It might not be kid friendly, but I'm betting it would taste Delicious!
