I've mentioned before, I hate the actual baking of the cake. I don't think I've ever been "wowed" by the taste of homemade cake, so I usually either team up with my pals Betty Crocker or Duncan Hines for the cake. I'd much rather put my effort into make a delicious frosting. For this one, I wanted to make an almond frosting, one of my favorite flavors and a general crowd pleaser. Like the peanut butter frosting for my brother's guitar cake, this frosting is super easy and pretty idiot-proof. A really great compliment to a vanilla cake.
-1/2 cup butter, softened
-1 and 1/2 teaspoons almond extract
-3 tablespoons milk
-2 cups powdered sugar
1. Cream the butter with an electric mixer. Beat in the almond extract.
2. Stir in the powdered sugar and milk alternately.
