Method

Beat the butter until smooth.

Add 2-3 tbsps of icing sugar at a time.

Then add vanilla extract.

Then add 2-3more tbsps of icing sugar.

For this frosting I kept adding icing sugar until I got the consistency that I wanted.

So add as little as or as much as you want!

Toppers

The pumpkins were made from sugar paste and a cocktail stick.

The Spider webs and scary face was just black colouring and icing sugar and a teeny nozzle.
